The Anchialos Glacier ( Bulgarian ледник Анхиало lednik Anchialo ) is a 8.5 km long and 3.4 km wide glacier in the west Antarctic Ellsworthland . In the Sostra Heights of the northern Sentinel Range in the Ellsworth Mountains, it flows north of the lower section of Embree Glacier , east of Sabazios Glacier and northwest of Wit Piedmont Glacier from the northeastern slopes of Mount Malone and the western slopes of Bracken Peak in a northerly direction to the Newcomer Glacier , which he reaches east of Mount Lanning .
