I’VE REACHED THE TOP OF DHAULAGIRI!
In only 444 days this is the seventh 8000 m-summit, without the help of artificial oxygen. After Broad Peak, K2, Manaslu, Lhotse, Nanga Parbat and Gasherbrum II, today I’ve already reached Dhaulaguiri, of 8,167 meters! After 13 hours, now the most important thing is the descent
Sergi Mingote begins the 14x1000 Catalonia Project with an expedition to the "white mountain".
Mingote plans to install three height fields. The most technical and committed part of the route is at 7,300 meters high, with a mixed section of ice and rock which has caused the resignation of many expeditions.
During this year (and the last one) there haven't been any ascensions and the mountain seems to be very inaccessible during the last years. The Catalan climber plans to reach the Base Camp (4,600 meters) on September 20th, after flying to Pokhara and doing four days of trekking.
Sergi Mingote reaches the top of Nang Parbat (8,125m)
A beautiful mountain, hard and tough, which it gave us nothing and that has taken us about 12 hours of ascent. Also, there wasn't a single fixed rope from Camp 4 to the top. Something understandable, since we chose to ascend the mountain by the "Sadpara variant". This route goes by the right side of the usual snow corridor that normally people grabs at the end of the journey. The variant is an edge of mixed terrain, of snow, rock and ice, which gives this mountain a personality, which by the way it has not a lack ... WHAT HARD! I would say that it has been for me one of the hardest ascents I have made, because of the working and the commitment, along with the descent of K2.
