Names that other countries have for this feature:
Broad, gently sloping glacier, 18 mi long and 17 mi wide at its mouth, which flows westward from the W side of Palmer Land into George VI Sound. It is bounded on its N side by the nunataks S of Mount Edgell, on its S side by the Traverse Mountains and Terminus Nunatak, and at its head Prospect Glacier provides a route to Wordie Ice Shelf. First surveyed in 1936 by the BGLE under Rymill and resurveyed in 1948 by the FIDS. The name expresses triumph of discovery and arose because the BGLE sledge party found their way to George VI Sound via this glacier in 1936.
