Narrative

awash NE of Cape Renard, Danco Coast, following survey by an RN Hydrographic Survey Unit from John Biscoe in April 1952, was so named because it is a hazard to navigation in this area of frequent low visibility, being too small to produce an easily identifiable radar echo (BA chart 3570, 4.vi.1954; APC, 1955, p.11; BA chart 3572, 25.vii.1958). Roca Azar [translation of English name] (Argentina. MM chart 130, 1957; Pierrou, 1970, p.179). Roca Hazard (Chile. DNH chart 1501, 1962; IHA, 1974, p.149).
