ANNAPURNA III SOUTH EAST RIDGE FIRST CLIMB🇺🇦Nikita Balabanov @nikitoz.balabanov kindly gave me an exclusive interview about their historic climb .Here an excerpt:"It's difficult to give a summary of such a big route. It starts at 4600, so 2950 m of elevation. Lower part is more or less moderate with sections of difficult mixed and lots of vertical snow and difficult ridges without protection, after 6000 until 7000-7100 the technical crux is. It's a mixture of vertical rock, hard mixed, ice and super steep snow ridges. After it SE ridge connects to S ridge and there are easier snow slopes and ridges up to the summit at 7555. Difficulty on the route was up to M6, 6a, aid A3, ice 80' and snow 90'.[..]"With Mikhail Fomin & Viacheslav Polezhaiko👉 Soon on @climbingmagazine 👈#montagnamagicaweb #annapurnaiii#Himalaya#climbing#alpinismo#alpinism#alpinestyle ...
