The three leaders of Dominican Republic’s first Mount Everest expedition have concluded the second training rotation by reaching camps I and II, at 6,000 and 6,500 meters of altitude.
Karim Mella and Iván Gomez said they stayed two nights at the camps while Federico Jovine starts the second rotation around 5 p.m. local time, 3 a.m. in Nepal. “We have already returned to the base camps. We were out of reach to make a call for approximately two or three days. We’re tired but very strong and healthy.”
The expedition led by Mella Jovine and Go'mez continues the historic trek and affirms they’re convinced they’ll reach the Everest’s summit, as promised to the Dominican population during their sendoff.
