Narrative

Cape which forms the NE end of Jason Peninsula, on the E coast of Graham Land. Discovered and named in 1893 by a Norwegian expedition under C.A. Larsen. The name is probably descriptive. Larsen reported that he gave the name Framnes (forward point) to the promontory which shoots off in an eastern direction from Mount Jason (now Jason Peninsula). He said it appeared to be the most advanced point of land which his expedition saw here.
