Ascending the rim of Topographers Cirque, Arctic Ural
Topographers Glacier is one of the few surviving glaciers in the Southern part of Arctic Ural (they are present in abundance further North). The glacier is perched in the back of an enormous East-facing cirque of a tributary of Enga-Yu Creek.

The ascent route from Enga-Yu to the plateau rim was described as a steep one with a 50-ft rock face, but we found a better variation and got to the mile-wide saddle of Slozhny Pass without even taking our skis off. Our uptrack went along the right side of this band of rocks.

October 1986
