High rocky point which lies 5 mi SW of Cape Gage and marks the N side of the entrance to Markham Bay on the E side of James Ross Island. First seen and surveyed by the SwedAE under Nordenskjold, 1901-04, who named it Kap Ekelof after Dr. Eric Ekelof, medical officer of the expedition. Resurveyed by FIDS in 1953. Point is considered a more suitable descriptive term for this feature than cape.
