Narrative

La punta fue cartografiada por primera vez por la Expedición Sueca de 1901-1904, al mando de Nordenskjöld, quien le dio este nombre por Carl Skottsberg, botánico de la expedición. Toma este nombre el extremo más avanzado hacia el S de isla Trinidad. La punta la forma un morro de 122 mts. de altura, libre de hielos en verano, que se destaca por el color negro de la piedra.
