Short, steep glacier between Briggs Hill and Condit Glacier, flowing NW from Descent Pass into Ferrar Glacier, in Victoria Land. So named because of the adventurous descent made here by the party led by Armitage of the BrNAE, 1901-04. The name seems to have been first used on maps of the BrAE, 1910-13.
