Narrative

rising to c. 800m S of Khamsin Pass, Fallières Coast, were probably seen by BGLE in September 1936; surveyed by BAS from "Stonington Island", 1970 72, and so named because the rocks were used as a rendezvous for two sledge parties travelling from opposite sides of the plateau in 1970, and are also near the BGLE rendezvous of 11 November 1936 (Stephenson and Fleming, 1940, p.162) (APC, 1980, p.5; BAS 250P sheet SR 19 20/6, 1 DOS 1978).
