Cutler Stack is a sea stack extending 170 by 150 m (186 by 164 yd) and rising to 16 m (52 ft), lying off Nedelya Point in the south of Barclay Bay, western Livingston Island in the South Shetland Islands, Antarctica. The area was visited by early 19th century sealers.
The feature is named after Captain Benjamin Cutler, part owner of the American brig Frederick that visited the area in 1820-21, and Master of the sealing schooner Free Gift that visited the area in 1821-22; his name was found carved on a piece of whale vertebra excavated from a stone hut on Byers Peninsula by a FIDS survey party in 1957-58.
