Description (see definition): A glacier 8 mi long, flowing W into Weyerhaeuser Glacier in northern Graham Land. Surveyed in Jan. 1960 by Falklands Islands Dependencies Survey (FIDS) who discovered the glacier after several fruitless attempts to find a route out of the mountains east of Earnshaw Glacier. It provided an ideal "road" back to known country and was therefore named after Hermes, the god of roads in Greek mythology. This name by UK Antarctic Place-names Committee (UK-APC) initiated the idea of naming other features in this area after Greek gods.
