False Cape Renard
False Cape Renard (Coordinates: ) is a rocky cape 1.5 nautical miles (3 km) southwest of Cape Renard, on the northwest coast of Kiev Peninsula, Graham Land. It was charted by the Belgian Antarctic Expedition 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. The name "False Cape Renard" was applied by the French Antarctic Expedition, 1908–10, under Jean-Baptiste Charcot.
