21.10.2007Good NEWS. October 21st. In the morning on 9:10 Valeri and Sergei were on the top Jannu!
Yesterday the snow was falling all the night.
At 10 a.m. yesterday they were beginning climbing from 7 400 m just right up to the head wall and basically on the south side. To climb faster they left part of equipment and took minimum: tent, gas. All the night they sit in the tent without sleeping bag on 76 00 meters.
On 6 a.m. October 21st they started to climb up to the top.
We had a radio connection at 9:30 a.m. from the top. They were making photos and were going to go down by the same way.
Details you will get from them very soon. I hope.
Olga Babanova, BC Jannu
