After 20 days of effort and the attempt to reach the summit of Dhaulagiri, Carlos Soria and his team are already resting in the capital after returning on Saturday May 26 from Kathmandu. Upon his arrival at the Barajas Airport and excited, Carlos Soria commented the moment of the decision to desist in the attempt to climb to the top, but with the spirit and human quality that characterizes him, grateful for having lived such a wonderful experience and receiving the warm support from Spain during all the stages of the Expedition.
Everything went on as planned until arriving at camp III of the mountain, at 7,250 meters altitude, when the weather forecasts became more negative than expected. The team decided to suspend the summit attempt, at the risk of suffering for its own integrity. “We are a little sad for not having reached the top, but happy for having done everything as best as possible and serving as a reference to other expeditions that were also forced to desist,” commented Carlos Soria.
From IFEMA, the President of the Executive Committee, Clemente González Soler, affirms that “With the regret that the effort and dedication with which each one of the different stages of the IFEMA-CARLOS SORIA Expedition has been undertaken, they have not finally had their deserved reward, we want to express our support and recognition to our most international mountaineer, for his courage as an athlete and for his human nobility. It has been a wonderful experience to have been able to promote this adventure and unite the name of IFEMA with that of an extraordinary person “
