A week has passed since Sergi Mingote’s death at K2, but the memory of the Spaniard is still installed in base camp. All the mountaineers who participated in their aid have been affected by the event for days and some of them, such as Alex Galvan, have decided to abandon the expedition because they are not in the best conditions.
As the, Tamara Lunger, has spent several days reflecting on her presence in the mountains after the death of her partner, but the mountaineer announced this weekend that she wanted to continue her adventure to dedicate it to Mingote. «It has been a difficult week, but today I reconnected with the earth. I have managed to regain calm in my heart, to see everything more clearly and to find some inner peace. I have decided to stay and continue with the expedition together with Juan Pablo Mohr, Sergi Mingote’s partner on the rope “, said the Italian.
His union of forces with the Chilean, who was walking behind Mingote when the fatal accident occurred, has its reason for being in the Catalan mountaineer. «We have joined forces to continue climbing in the name and spirit of Sergi. He is now going to be our guardian angel during the ascent. Sergi we miss you and we will take you on our climb to the top », explained Lunger on his social networks.
In that sense, the Chilean Mohr also had words of memory for the Spanish. «After falling you have to get up. Our friend Sergi is no longer with us physically, but he is with us in spirit. So, as he would have liked, we are going to go back for that summit, “he explained.
