Names that other countries have for this feature:
Rock 15 m high, surrounded by a group of smaller rocks, lying close E of Hut Cove along the S side of the entrance to Hope Bay, at the NE end of Antarctic Peninsula. Discovered by the SwedAE under Nordenskjold, 1901-04. The FIDS in 1945 named the entire group of rocks for Toralf Grunden, member of the SwedAE who wintered at Hope Bay in 1903, but in 1952 the name was restricted to the largest rock in this group for easier reference to the light beacon established on the main rock by the Argentine government during the previous season.
