Significant New Route On Everest

30 May, 2004 at 10 am Pavel Shabaline, Iljas Tukhvatullin and Andrew Mariev summited Everest via a significant new route - the centre of the North Wall! The Everest Central North Face direct (The Russian NF Direttissima) is the most significant new route on Everest, and one of the most significant routes on any 8000 meter peak in recent times. It also marks the twenty year anniversary of the last new, clean route on Everest; the Great Couloir 1984.
