Names that other countries have for this feature:
A conspicuous headland dominated by two steep needles rising to 740 meters, the slopes of which are too precipitous to retain snow. The prominent feature marks the southwestern entrance point to Flandres Bay and divides Danco Coast from Graham Coast on the west side of Antarctic Peninsula. It was discovered by the Belgian Antarctic Expedition under Lt. Adrien de Gerlache, 1897-99, and named after Professor Alphonse Renard, Belgian mineralogist of the University of Ghent, a member of the Belgica Commission and of the Belgian Royal Academy. This cape should not be confused with False Cape Renard (q.v.), which is similar in appearance and lies 1 mile southwestward.
