08-May-2004 -- The wanted point located in un-populated mountaineous (h = 593 meters), forest area in Gafuriysky Rayon (aka district) of Respublika Bashkortostan (Russia). The rayon's center, town Krasnousolsk, is about 40km of driving to principal direction to SW from this point. The nearest civilian can be met in the village Tolparovo, about 15km driving distance to NE. It's strange, but, nobody ever heard about "Utyashevo" there - the village name, presented in 54N55E CP description..

By the way, no so much directions to drive near this point. There only one road. One direction goes to Tolparovo, where the road terminates. Opposite way goes to Krasnousolsk (picture #6). The road built in 2003. You can see - no asphalt, but the road in mountains is always THE ROAD, regardless the quality.

In order to reach the wanted point we had to walk about 2km distance uphill through the forest, somewhere walking via snow fields.

And finally, here it is (picture #1).

Thank goodness:

  • there was a nice weather;
  • there was a road just built a year ago (2003);
  • GPS and digicam was with us.
