Narrative

rising 40m above sea level off N end of Gourdon Peninsula, Anvers Island. Following survey of the area by DI in 1927, the name was applied descriptively to a rock charted in the entrance to Lapeyrère Bay ([shown in 64°22'S 63°05'W] BA chart 3213, 14.i.1929; 1948, p.192; [in 64°22'S 63°09'W] APC, 1955, p.17). Roca Pirámide, in the position reported by DI (Chile. DNH chart LI, 1947; Pierrou, 1970, p.595; Chile. IHA, 1974, p.228). Following air photography by FIDASE and ground survey by FIDS from "Arthur Harbour, 1956-57, showing no rock in the position reported by DI, the name Pyramid Rock was applied to the present feature (APC, 1959a, p.10; BA chart 3566, 16.x.1959). Roca Pyramid, as rejected form (Chile. IHA, 1974, p.228).
