First seen by members of Swedish Antarctic Expedition (SwedAE), 1901-04, under Nordenskjold, who gave the descriptive name "Basaltspitze." Concerned that the name could be mistaken for descriptive information, the UK Antarctic Place-names Committee (UK-APC) changed it to Haslum Crag, honoring H.J. Haslum, second mate on the Antarctic, the ship of the Swedish Antarctic Expedition (SwedAE), 1901-04. The crag was surveyed by Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) in 1952.
