Narrative

Steep, heavily crevassed glacier, 13 mi long and 5 mi wide at its mouth, which flows from McLeod Hill westward and then SW into Marguerite Bay between the Debenham Islands and Roman Four Promontory, on the W coast of Graham Land. First surveyed in 1936 by the BGLE under Rymill. Resurveyed in 1940 by members of the USAS, who first used this glacier as a sledging route, and so named by them because it lies at the northeast side of their base at Stonington Island.
