Isolated Danger Mark

An isolated danger mark differs from cardinals in as much as they are both indicating danger but different types. A cardinal mark indicates an area of danger whereas an isolated danger mark indicates a lone obstruction such as a rock.

In theory you can circle around an isolated danger mark. However, always check the chart and surrounding area before you try it.
