Description (see definition): Rocky mass surmounted by two flat-topped summits 1.5 mi apart, immediately S of Saturn Glacier in the SE part of Alexander Island. The rocks of these cliffs were hidden from the line of sight by intervening ice slopes to the W, but the two rock ridges forming the NW shoulder of this feature were first seen and photographed from the air by Lincoln Ellsworth on Nov. 23, 1935, and mapped from these photos by W.L.G. Joerg. The cliffs were first surveyed in 1949 by the Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS), who gave this name to mark the point where the exposed rock of eastern Alexander Island turns from a N-S direction toward the southwest.
