Everest 82

Primera expedició catalana a l'Everest

Official film of the first Catalan expedition to Everest in 1982 by the difficult West Ridge, organized by the Centre Excursionista de Catalunya (CEC). Xavier Pérez Gil and Òscar Cadiach reached a height of 8,500m, but strong winds and the technical difficulties forced them to retreat. The expedition joined two generations of Catalan climbers: the veterans who made the first ascent of Annapurna West in 1974, and the young ones who made the first Catalan ascent of Everest three years later. In 1982, the West Ridge direct route, first attempted by a French team in 1974, had only been completed once, by a Yugoslav expedition in 1979.
