Names that other countries have for this feature:
An alpine glacier composed of two segments, separated by an icefall, which flow northeastward from névé in the area north of Auster Pass, northwest of Mount Kempe. The Glimpse Glacier joins the Pipecleaner Glacier about 4km south of the confluence of the latter with the Radian Glacier. Feature shown on: NZ AntTopo50-MH09
The named was given by the Victoria University of Wellington Antarctic Expedition (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.
