Slovenian mountaineers open new climbing route in Nepal

The Slovenian Mountaineering Association (PZS) reported that a pair of Slovenian mountaineers succeeded in making the first ascent on a new 1700m route on the north-west face of Mount Chobutse (6680 m) in Nepal, which they named Slovenian Direct.

Luka Stražar and Nejc Marčič completed their feat between 28 and 30 October. The route is a combination of technical difficulty and high altitude climbing, while the wind and cold made the experience truly Himalayan, said PZS.
