Description

No Name Cirque is a steep cirque between Mt Russel and No Name. Much of the top is guarded by cornices. About halfway between Mt Russell and No Name, however, there is a large boulder which often creates a break in the cornice. The cirque itself is fairly steep and has some fun cliff in it.

This area sees frequent avalanches, so be very careful if considering skiing No Name Cirque.
