Norman Clyde Glacier is a small glacier located in the crest of the Sierra Nevada Range in the John Muir Wilderness of Inyo National Forest in Inyo County, California.[2] The glacier is northwest of Norman Clyde Peak (13,861 ft (4,225 m) NAVD 88)[3] and both are named after California mountaineer Norman Clyde.[1][3] A small ridge separates the glacier from the adjacent but larger Middle Palisade Glacier located less than .25 mi (0.40 km) to the southeast.
