Names that other countries have for this feature:
Prominent rock bluff on the E coast of Alexander Island marking the N side of the mouth of Uranus Glacier where it enters George VI Sound. Probably first seen by Lincoln Ellsworth, who flew directly over it and photographed segments of the coast in this vicinity on Nov. 23, 1935. First roughly surveyed in 1936 by the BGLE and so named by them because fossils were found in the rock strata there. Resurveyed in 1948 by the FIDS.
