Narrative

Narrow glacier which flows 30 mi in an ENE direction through a deep trough into Exasperation Inlet, on the E coast of Antarctic Peninsula. Sir Hubert Wilkins photographed this feature from the air in 1928 and gave it the name Crane Channel, after C.K. Crane of Los Angeles, reporting that it appeared to be a channel cutting in an E-W direction across the peninsula. The name was altered to Crane Inlet following explorations along the W coast of the peninsula in 1936 by the BGLE, which proved that no through channel from the E coast existed as indicated by Wilkins. Comparison of Wilkins' photograph of this feature with those taken in 1947 by the FIDS shows that Wilkins' "Crane Channel" is this glacier, although it lies about 75 mi NE of the position originally reported by Wilkins.
