North East Glacier (Butson, 1949, p.199). Sodabread Slope, referring to a steep slope on the sledge route near the head of the glacier, the name being descriptive of the snow texture (Walton, 1955, p.86). An Argentine refuge hut, called "Yapeyú" after the birthplace of Gen. J. de San Martín, was established at the head of the glacier, 4 November 1955 (Thomas, 1957a, p.523). Northeast Glazier [sic] (FIG, 1960, p.69). North-east Glacier (BA, 1961, p.69). "Refugio Yapeyú" (Pierrou, 1970, p.732).
