Russian Jannu team reaches 7000m
10:39 a.m. EDT Oct 3, 2003
The latest word from the Jannu team is that Odintsov, the expedition leader says that hes just got a hairline fracture on his hand; hell be ready to climb again in a week. Meanwhile, the rest of the Jannu team moved up to 7000m and dug in a snow cave, spending the night there. Everything is going ok.

The picture to the left is of the intended route up Jannu. No zig-zagging or anything of the sort just straight up to the top.

The Big Walls - Russian Routes team has its sights set on twelve of the world's biggest walls. They've currently accomplished six of the twelve and will be going for Jannu's unclimbed wall - 7710m. For a warm-up, the team traveled to Tien Shan where they successfully summited Khan Tengri.
