Rocky point 2 mi SE of False Round Point on the N coast of King George Island, in the South Shetland Islands. The point is one of the features named Pyritic or Esther Islands by Scottish geologist David Ferguson in 1913-14. Although Ferguson represented the point as a rocky island separated from the ice cliff of King George Island by a channel 400 ft wide, air photos show that there is no channel. Named by UK-APC in 1960. The word "gam" is an old sealers' and whalers' term for the occasions when groups of men from several vessels met in one of them for a gossip. Nearby Esther Harbor was an anchorage frequently used by sealers.
