Narrative

largest of a group of rocks S of Cape Conway, Snow Island, rising 85 m above sea level. The group was roughly charted by Weddell, 1821-22, and called descriptively Black Rocks (Weddell, 1825a, map facing p.132). Schwarze Felsen [=black rocks] (Weddell, 1827, third end map). Roca Black (Spain. DH chart 458, 1861). Black Rk (Charcot, 1912, Pl. 1). The group was recharted by an RN Hydrographic Survey Unit from John Biscoe, 1951-52, when the name Tooth Rock was applied to the largest rock ([Hunt], chart, 1951-52a; APC, 1955, p.21; DOS 610 sheet W 62 60, 1968). Rocas Cuis [=guinea-pig rocks], referring descriptively to the group of rocks (Argentina. MD, 1978, letter C).
