Probably first seen by Lincoln Ellsworth who photographed segments of the coast in this vicinity on Nov. 23, 1935. First roughly surveyed from the ground in 1936 by the British Graham Land Expedition (BGLE) and resurveyed in 1948 by the Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS). So named by Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) because a geologic succession, or depositional sequence, is revealed by the accessible rock exposures of the cliffs.
