Description (see definition): Conspicuous rock stack lying 1.5 mi N of Point Thomas on the W side of Admiralty Bay, King George Island, in the South Shetland Islands. The name "Anse Denais," for one of the seamen on the Pourquoi-Pas?, was given in 1908-10 by the French Antarctic Expedition (FrAE) under Charcot to a cove on the N side of Ezcurra Inlet. Recent air photos show no cove in this position and the name Denais has been transferred to the feature now described in order to preserve Charcot's naming in the area.
