Description (see definition): An alpine glacier composed of two segments, separated by an icefall, which flow NE from neve in the area between Mount Kempe and Mount Huggins. It joins the Pipecleaner Glacier 2 mi S of the confluence of the latter with the Radian Glacier. So named by the Victoria University's Antarctic Expeditions (VUWAE), 1960-61, because it was up this glacier that the geologists traversed to the Koettlitz-Skelton divide at the ridge crest in order to gain their only glimpse of the polar plateau in January 1961.
