Dream Wanderlust | Feb 28 , 2018
Basque mountaineer Alex Txikon, who was on his Everest expedition with Muhammad Ali Sadpara without using supplemental oxygen this winter finally abandon the expedition today afternoon by posted on Facebook, "After thinking a lot and doing everything that is in our hands to follow our dreams, we decided to bring the expedition of winter Everest without artificial oxygen 2018 to an end. It hasn't been easy, but I'm sure that it is the best decision. The permit ends today 28th February, so taking into account the extra expenses that this will suppose and that the meteorologists do not predict good weather until March 14, almost at the end of winter, we have taken this hard decision. Therefore, feeling sad but at the same time proud of all the work everyone has done, equipping the whole mountain in extreme conditions, we left behind Everest Base Camp which has been our home the whole winter. I hope that with the experiences and adventures I've sharing with you day after day, it has been yours too. You will never stop surprising me. Let's continue dreaming."
