A glacier that flows westward from Craddock Massif between Mount Slaughter and Mount Atkinson into Nimitz Glacier, Sentinel Range, Ellsworth Mountains. The upper portion of the glacier also receives ice from Hammer Col and southern Vinson Massif. Named by US-ACAN (2006) after Damien Gildea, Australian leader of several Omega Foundation expeditions to Sentinel Range and Livingston Island, 2000-05. He made an ascent of Mount Craddock via this glacier, 2005, and directed the preparation of a 1:50,000-scale map of the Vinson Massif area for publication by the Omega Foundation, 2006.
