A steep valley glacier descending the W slope of Vinson Massif between Tulaczyk Glacier and Donnellan Glacier in the Sentinel Range. The glacier flows westward into Nimitz Glacier.

Zapol, Department of Anesthesia, Massachusetts General Hospital, whose long-term research near McMurdo Station on diving physiology of Weddell seals (begun mid 1970s) was part of a larger effort to understand how gas is handled in mammals as part of a search to understand SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome).
