Ullu-Tau (4,207m), north face, new route. In June 2003 a team of Czech climbers Bohuslav Vlcek, Jan Skalik, and Ondra Vespalec climbed a new route on the 1,400-meter high north face of Ullu-Tau (4,207m). Ullu-Tau is at the end of Adyr-Su Valley in Central Kavkaz. The new route is on the right of the north face through a snow couloir and snow-ice threshold. They began climbing at 3 a.m. and were on top 14 hours later. They descended after a bivy the next day.
