Thanks to Klemens Riha and Terrill Thompson for contributing to these details. (View history)

Sutay Uul is an isolated peak in the Mongolian Altai mountains. It is covered by a large plateau glacier. It's fairly easy to climb, although one requires appropriate equipment (crampons and ropes) for the last 200-300m. Most climbers access from the Khovd side but it's also possible to get on top from the GovAltai side. If you are lucky (we were lucky) you might see the rare snow-leopard, but climbers will definitely see ibexes and marmots. Sutay Uul is not a very popular mountain and almost no one knows anything about it. There are no books or any other information available; the best maps are the Russian military maps (1:1 000 000) and the American Flight Navigation Maps; I would appreciate if anyone who knows something about Sutay Uul or has climbed it could contact me: klemensriha@hotmail.com
