is a small, relatively high, tussock-covered island
, rising to a peak
at its northern end, lying at the east end of the Willis Islands
at South Georgia
. It was roughly mapped by Discovery Investigations
personnel in 1960-61. The name was given in 1963 by the United Kingdom Antarctic Place-Names Committee
(UK-APC) and is descriptive, the expression "standing proud" in naval parlance being the equivalent of "sticking up."
