Narrative

Los primeros en darle este nombre fueron los cazadores de focas de esta zona, pues muchos de ellos perdieron la vida al perderse sus barcos en la navegación del estrecho. Cadenas de islotes y rocas que se extienden desde isla Livingston a la isla Snow, a través del límite S del estrecho Morton, en las islas Shetland del Sur.
