Russian climbers reach 5900m on K2

Climbers from the Russian winter expedition to K2 have started making progress up a router on K2. Three climbers reached 5900m up what is expected to be the Cesen route (they had planned to go up the beginning of this route). Alex Bolotov, Vladimir Belous and Eugeny Vinogradsky fixed ropes up this way. It was planned that Nick Totmjanin, Valery Shamalo and Vitaly Gorelik would continue the work the next day.
