Descriptive name given in 1906 by Tarr (1909, fig. 4). This is one of many glaciers of this type in the Yakutat Bay area, such as Cataract Glacier, Cascading Glacier, and Toboggan Glacier. Because of glacial erosion by the main valley glacier, the tributary glaciers often "hang" above the main valley.
