The not so direct Everest North Wall line
image story



Jun 21, 2004 12: 40 EST
Preliminary reports have reached us that the Russian North Wall route was not as direct as previously planned.

During the climb, the guys alerted from BC that their final ascent was "a bit to the left" of the original maps.

Well, in the debrief pic to your left is the actual route...
Yeah, it's to the left alright.

We are investigating further, but at this point it sure seems that the Russian direct will have to have a name change.
