Nanga Summit !!!
Sergi Mingote makes the summit of Nanga Parbat (8,125)
Beautiful mountain, hard, demanding, that does not give anything away, and that has taken us about 12 hours of ascent. Also not a single fixed rope from C4 to summit. Not one, logical thing, since we chose to ascend the mountain by the "Sadpara variant" route that goes to the right of the usual snow corridor that is taken at the end of the journey. The variant is an edge of mixed terrain, of snow, rock and ice that gives this mountain a character that certainly does not lack ... THAT LASTS!
