Everest new routes galore: Moro and Steck in the game

Posted: Feb 08, 2013 08:58 pm EST

(Newsdesk) In addition to Gleb Sokolov and Alexander Kirikov just released today and Urubko/Bolotov announced last month, Montagna.tv (check the feeds in the world news section for a direct link to the report) said today that speed climber Ueli Steck and heli-rescue pilot Simone Moro are the latest addition to the new route attempts coming up on Everest this spring.

The attempt will go on the Nepalese side of the peak and Montagna has an exclusive video-interview shot yesterday at an event where the two climbers spoke of the project.

The site also has an in-depth interview coming up with Ueli Steck, who speed-climbed Everest normal route last spring.
