Description (see definition): Rocky cape 1.5 mi SW of Cape Renard, on the W coast of Graham Land. Charted by the Belgian Antarctic Expedition (BelgAE) under Gerlache, 1897-99. This feature and Cape Renard together were called "The Needles" by Henryk Arctowski, geologist, oceanographer and meteorologist with the Belgian expedition. Since the two capes are easily confused and need to be distinguished, a collective name is considered unsuitable. False Cape Renard was applied by the French Antarctic Expedition (FrAE) under Charcot, 1908-10.
