Highest mountain in Arctic Russia

by jg3s » Fri Apr 27, 2018 8:25 pm

I'm trying to find out the highest mountain in Arctic Russia (above the 66.6 line of latitude). Its not as easy as just googling it! I think its mount Kamen at 1,701m. Can anyone confirm this an know if its been climbed? Many thanks

I expected Novaya Zemlya to provide some possibilities, but much to my surprise, Novaya Zemlya has no elevations higher than 1547 metres.

Kamchatka has some decent elevations among its volcanoes, but of course, it's too far south.
