Roughly surveyed in 1936 by the British Graham Land Expedition (BGLE), and by the U.S. Antarctic Service (USAS) in 1940. Resurveyed in 1946 and 1948 by the Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS), who so named it because the bluff stands in the windiest part of Northeast Glacier and many members of Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) sledge parties have fallen in this area in high winds.
