Narrative

three rocks off-shore NW of Cape Juncal, d'Urville Island, were called Rocas Montiel or Roca Montiel by AAE, probably after a member of the expedition (Argentina. MM, 1953, p.314, 344); also called by AAE Roca Montrol or Rocas Montrol, in error for Montrol Rock (q.v.) (Argentina. MM chart FI, 1954; 124, 1957); photographed from the air by FIDASE, 1956-57; in association with Southtrap Rock (q.v.), named Northtrap Rocks as the N-most of two features which should be avoided by ships entering Antarctic Sound from the N (APC, 1964, p.4; BAS 250 sheet SP 21-22/14 (Ext.), 1-DOS 1973).
