I just came by heli in the course of IPY expedition, actually it's almost the only way to get there - the site is ca. 80 m a.s.l. with a steep slope covered with snow field nice, isolated place!

the storage was on another island - Alexandra LAnd, but this one - Cape Fligeli - is the nearest land spot tp the North Pole in Eurasia, just 900 km
