The study deals with the Lena Pillars (Sakha Republic, Russia, Siberia). AA. investigated the veneers of cliffs, the fracture density of the building rock, the distribution and dispersion of the fracture directions, the direction distribution and dispersion of the giant grikes between the pillars, the layer thickness of the building rock, the size and dispersion of debris. Having distinguished pillar types, they classified the features on the area of the pillars from morphogenetic point of view. The forms of pillars developed by denudation, accumulation and can be developed from paleokarsts. During former karstification, grikes and caverns developed close to the surface. These features coalesced into each other. The giant grikes of great size got filled and the pillars were covered. After the incision of the Lena river these features were revealed and become exhumed. By now the pillars are destroyed, developing by frost weathering. - (AM)
