Names that other countries have for this feature:
A low rounded point, projecting from the south-eastern side of Hut Point Peninsula, about 1 1/2 miles north-east of Cape Armitage on Ross Island. Discovered by the NAE, 1901-04, which so named it because it was necessary to use a pram, a Norwegian-type dinghy, in the open water adjacent to the point when travelling between the southern end of Hut Point Peninsula and the Ross Ice Shelf. Chosen by Sir Edmund Hillary as the site for Scott Base, the base camp of the New Zealand Party of the TAE, 1956-58.
