Names that other countries have for this feature:
Rocky point, 85 m high, forming the SE extremity of Greenwich Island, South Shetland Islands. The highest rock at the seaward end of the point was named Castle Rock by DI personnel following their survey in 1935. The name Fort Rock, considered equally descriptive of the feature, was recommended by the UK-APC in 1954 to avoid confusion with Castle Rock lying close westward of Snow Island, only 60 mi away. Air photos now show that the feature is not an isolated sea feature but is connected to Greenwich Island.
