Lobuje East, East Face. In September, Czechoslovaks Miroslav and Michal Coubal climbed a possibly new route in the center of the east face of Lobuje East (6119 meters, 20,076 feet) which rises between the Lowe-Kendall and the Bibler-Freer routes. (It is not clear just which part of the face was climbed by Briton Etherington and German Schneider in December, 1989.) They took five days to complete this difficult climb.
