Names that other countries have for this feature:
rising to 375m on Tabarin Peninsula, Trinity Peninsula, was surveyed by FIDS from "Hope Bay" in 1946; called Dos Juancitos [=two little Johns] by AAE (Olsacher and others, 1956, p. 86); resurveyed by FIDS from "Hope Bay" in 1956 and named Fivemile Rock, because it lies almost exactly 5 miles from the station on the route to Duse Bay (APC, 1958, p. 5; DOS 310 Hope Bay sheet, 1961). The Argentine refuge hut "Martín Güemes", so called after Gen. M. Güemes (Rockpepper Bay, q.v.), was established here in 1959-60, the name being transferred from the refuge at Duse Bay (q.v.).
