Narrative

El 7 de enero de 1843 fue llamada cabo Lockyer por el capitán de navío James Clark Ross a pedido del capitán de navío Francis R.M. Crozier, en honor de su amigo capitán de navío Nicolás Lockyer R.N. La Expedición An tártica Sueca de Otto Nordenskjöld en 1902, demostró que era una isla. Isla que se alza al centro de la boca W del paso Almirantazgo, a 3,5 millas al SE de cabo Foster, mide 2,5 millas de extensión 460 metros de altura. Es de costas acantiladas, donde alternan los glaciares, con manchas de piedra desnuda, su cima está coronada por una cúpula de hielo.
