Title: These guys are CLIMBING!!!
Post by: Corsair on Jul 27 2004, 01:38
When in Russia some days ago I listened to a heated discussion between approx. 15 very good Russian climbers. They were going to vote for "best mountaineering achivement of the year".
They had two main options:
Jannu north face:

and
Everest north face "direct route":

Two completely fantastic feats!
What do you guys think?
Which is the most difficult of those two climbs?
We can only guess  ;)

since these are both extremely difficult climbs, it is hard to say, so lets analyze some points of the climbs.

More of a straight line- Everest

Angle- Jannu

Taller- Everest

so i would give it to the everest guys.
