Names that other countries have for this feature:
rising c. 60m above Larsen Ice Shelf at SE end of Churchill Peninsula, Oscar II Coast, were surveyed by FIDS from "Hope Bay" in September 1955; so named because the astronomical fix obtained near the summit of the cliffs was essential for the control of the survey traverse (APC, 1958, p.4; BA chart 3570, 29.ix.1961). Cabo Suecia [=cape Sweden], presumably in reference to SwAE (Argentina. MM chart 121, 1969).
