Andy Houseman and Nick Bullock made the sixth ascent the Slovak Direct on Denali.
The route was first climbed in a groundbreaking 60-hour single push by Scott Backes, Mark Twight and Steve House in 2000 helping to pave the way for future ascents of big lines.
Houseman wrote on his blog:
“We didn’t climb it in a single push or enchain it with another Alaskan grade 6 test piece like some of the previous ascents but for us the atmosphere of the face, the remoteness, the size and the four days of bad weather lead to the most committed and out there route either of us had ever done.”
