Misión accomplished. CONGRATULATIONS!
News from the summit: The
Canarias-Everest Expedition has reached today, Monday May 17, the goal they
were searching: to crown the summit of the highest peak in the World.
As planned, Diago Amador and
Javi Cruz left yesterday, around 9 in the evening (Nepal time) from Camp 4,
with the goal of ending this great feat for Canarian sports. After a hard
night of ascent, Javi Cruz was affected by some problems due to mountain
sickness around 8,520 meters of altitude, so he had to turn around.
Meanwhile, Diego Amador decided to continue, until he reached the summit of
Everest around 8:15 in the morning (Nepal time).
The members of the Expedition
are in this moment recovering in Camp 4, and plan to reach Base Camp between
May 18 and 19.
Javi and Diego feel satisfied
because of the achievement and happy because their effort and dedication in
this feat has finally turned in success. They wish to share this happiness
with friends and relatives because the objective has been achieved in less
time than what was estimated, and they plan to have an early flight back to
the Canary Islands to be with them as soon as possible.
