Ûab (Syr."Icy Land") was located north of the heartland of the eastern branch of the Ered Engrin (S. "Iron Mountains"). Like Avikangsdar to the west and Ûax to the east, it was an utterly desolate coastal region. The bitter winds off the Helkëar insured that it remained home to virtually no one save a few scattered bands of Umli hunters.
