A mountain on the side of the icefall, named after the Norwegian explorer Fridjtof Nansen. Fridtjof Wedel-Jarlsberg Nansen (1861 – 1930) was a Norwegian explorer, scientist, diplomat, humanitarian and Nobel laureate. He led the first crossing of the Greenland interior in 1888, and won international fame after reaching a record northern latitude of 86°13' during his North Pole expedition of 1893–96. Although he retired from exploration after his return to Norway, his techniques of polar travel and his innovations in equipment and clothing influenced a generation of subsequent Arctic and Antarctic expeditions, including Amundsen.
