Narrative

An alpine glacier composed of two segments, separated by an icefall, which flow north-eastward from névé in the area between Mt Kempe and Mt Huggins. The Glimpse joins the Pipecleaner about 2 miles south of the confluence of the latter with the Radian. The named was given by the 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.
