Names that other countries have for this feature:
Point marked by conspicuous high rock stacks, forming the E limit of King George Bay on the S coast of King George Island, in the South Shetland Islands. The point was charted in 1937 by DI personnel on the Discovery II who gave the name Turret Rocks, but this has led to confusion with a group of rocks lying close offshore. The UK-APC recommended in 1960 that since the feature originally named is a land feature, the term point be used to avoid confusion and ambiguity.
