Narrative

Point formed by an ice cliff with a small amount of rock exposed at its base, lying at the N side of Yankee Harbor immediately E of Glacier Bluff, Greenwich Island, in the South Shetland Islands. Charted and named Rocky Point by DI personnel on the Discovery II in 1935. In order to avoid duplication the UK-APC rejected this name in 1961 and substituted a new one. Hopsital Point derives from Hospital Cove, a name for Yankee Harbor in common use among British sealers in the 1820s and British whalers in the 1920s.
