Szurdok Ridge was a mountainous ridge in Ütközet, Viery Territory on the human Inner Colony world of Reach.[1][2]

Overview[edit]

Geography[edit]

A river on top of the ridge housed a large hydroelectric power plant that provided energy for Reach's inhabitants.[2] A BXR Mining facility was also in the region.[1]

History[edit]

Human-Covenant war[edit]

In the August of 2552, a portion of Noble Team was sent to scout a Covenant "dark zone" at Szurdok Ridge during the Fall of Reach. There they discovered that the area was being used as a staging ground for their forces to invade the planet.[2]

The next day a large battle between the United Nations Space Command and the Covenant took place on the ridge. UNSC forces would eventually make their way to Spire One. There the CSO-class supercarrier would destroy the UNSC Grafton, sending it's wreckage into the ground.[1]

Post-war[edit]

During Operation: WOLFE, Banished forces were sent to scout Szurdok Ridge.[3]

Trivia[edit]

  • "Szurdok" is the Hungarian word for "canyon". Hence the name "Szurdok Ridge" sounds like a narrow trench or "Ridge Ridge".
  • Szurduk is a commune in present-day Romania.
