A broad outlet glacier of Queen Maud Land including its tributary, the Musketov Glacier. The glacier flows generally northward into Lazarev Ice Shelf and is nourished in its upper reaches by ice draining from the Hoel Mountains and the NE end of the Wohlthat Mountains. The lower part of the glacier, particularly the relationship with the Musketov Glacier, was first delinerated by the SovAE in 1961. They named it Lednik Entuziastov (enthusiasts' glacier).
