The Majorcans expeditionary
have made the first section of ascent to the Everest and they have installed
the Camp in the Silence Valley.
Last Sunday, the Majorcan
expedition formed by Tolo Calafat, Juan Antonio Olivieri, Tolo Quetglas and
Jose Maria Alvarez began the attack to the Everest, crossing the Khumbu’s ice
cascade in the Camp I, in the Silence Valley to 6,060 meters of height.
The expeditionary Majorcans
needed more than five hours to surpass the 700 meters of unevenness that there
is between the Base Camp and Camp I. A complex and delicate itinerary that’s
more dangerous in the middle where fixed metallic and prudent stairs
facilitate the step.
Yesterday, the expeditionary
will follow their march until closely of Camp II, but they not arrived
yesterday. It will be the new challenge to surpass the next weekend, whereas
in a pair of days Sherpas of height leaves it installed.
