Narrative

Fue descubierto por la Expedición Británica de 1934-1937, al mando de John Rymill, quien le dio el nombre porque este islote representa el punto de caída de una partida de la expedición que efectuó un viaje en trineo, en agosto de 1935, cuando encontró aguas abiertas al SW de este islote. Islote situado a 2,6 millas al WNW de cabo Black, frente a la costa W de la península Tierra de O'Higgins.
