Description (see definition): Rocky point 2 mi SE of Cape Demidov on the S coast of South Georgia. The coast in this vicinity was roughly charted in 1775 by a British expedition under Cook and in 1819 by a Russian expedition under Bellingshausen. The point itself appears on charts dating back to about 1900. It was named by the UK Antarctic Place-names Committee (UK-APC) following a survey by the South Georgia Survey (SGS), 1951-52, for Heinrich W. Klutschak, Austrian artist who accompanied the American sealing schooner Flying Fish to South Georgia in 1877-78 and published a narrative of his activities with a sketch map in 1881.
