 Everest 2001 Expedition: Polytechnic University of Valencia

Three climbers from Valencia, Spain will attempt Everest from the Standard North Col Route. This group has participated in three expeditions together and has worked to become a close-knit team. In the Himalayas, two of the three summited Cho Oyu (8,201) and, most recently, they had an unsuccessful expedition to Manaslu.  This was caused by bad weather. Of note is that they were accosted by terrorists during the trek to Manaslu!

Three men with a Dream: Man did they live it !!!

Experiences of a lifetime !

A Shared Dream (translated by Adrian Sutton)

Two and a half years have passed since we had the tentative idea of climbing Everest.

Two and a half years since we came down from the summit of Cho-Oyu, exhausted, but happy. Exhausted, but with the knowledge that we had reached the top of one of the highest mountains on earth.

What at the beginning was a fleeting idea, has taken shape and grown into a tangible goal.

But the Everest Project is not just a question of climbing Everest. It is an expedition of two and a half months to the highest mountain on earth. It has a first stage, which is now complete, which was to try and reach the summit of Manaslu, which at 8,163 meters is the 8th highest mountain on earth. It was not complete until we had reached the highest point, thanks entirely to the efforts of the mountaineers who would be tackling Everest.

The Everest project also consists of a never-ending list of preparations, of hours spent dedicated to a goal, choosing supplies and high altitude provisions, studying the route and its main difficulties etc etc. Happily the Everest Project isn’t a dream reserved for ourselves, it is a dream which since the very beginning has been shared by many people, through the press, direct radio communication with base camp and through the expedition’s official website.

Thanks to this, everyone who follows us can share the marvelous experience of climbing an 8000er. They can share in the experience of following a mountaineer on a daily basis as he treks through the Himalayas, along the thousands of kilometers he covers trying to realize a dream which belongs to everyone, because everyone feels the cold, and the fatigue in his body. Everyone wants to get over these hardships and reach the next high altitude camp. Everyone wants to climb the mountain with him.

Now, more than ever, it is everyone’s dream, a shared dream which some experience from a tent in the Himalayas, and others experience from their own homes, through a screen which puts them right next to the mountaineer himself.

Everest belongs to everyone, enjoy it!
