Narrative

The immense névé of the Skelton Glacier, lying on the west side of the Royal Society Range. It is almost circular in outline, about 40 miles in diameter, and has an area of about 1300 square miles. It is bounded on the east by the western ridges of the Royal Society Range: on the south by the outlet of the Skelton Glacier, the Worcester Range, Escalade Peak, and the noth end of the Boomerang Range; on the west by low nunataks and a continuous low ridge mostly inundated by ice moving east into the névé; and on the north by Mt Feather, the source of the Ferrar Glacier, and Pivot Peak. Surveyed by New Zealand parties of the TAE, 1956-58, from January 1957 onwards. It was named by them for the Skelton Glacier.
