Description (see definition): Steep, heavily crevassed glacier, 13 mi long and 5 mi wide at its mouth, which flows from McLeod Hill westward and then SW into Marguerite Bay between the Debenham Islands and Roman Four Promontory, on the W coast of Graham Land. First surveyed in 1936 by the British Graham Land Expedition (BGLE) under Rymill. Resurveyed in 1940 by members of the U.S. Antarctic Service (USAS), who first used this glacier as a sledging route, and so named by them because it lies at the northeast side of their base at Stonington Island.
