Names that other countries have for this feature:
Group of islands and rocks which extend 4 mi in an E-W direction, lying close off the Rymill Coast of Palmer Land opposite the N side of the mouth of Eureka Glacier, in George VI Sound. Surveyed in 1948 by FIDS and so named from the rock of which the islands are largely composed. The name "Grupo Maipo," after the Chilean oil tanker Maipo, may refer to these islands roughly charted by the Chilean Antarctic Expedition, 1947, in c. 6954S, 6833W.
