Point on the E coast of Alexander Island, 3 mi ESE of the S summit of Mount Tyrrell. A small rock exposure near sea level is surmounted by a 60 m ice cliff. First photographed from the air in 1937 by the BGLE under Rymill. Surveyed in 1948 by the FIDS, and so named by them because the ice cliff overhanging the spot where geological specimens were collected seemed like the sword of Damocles.
