For Spanish mountaineer CarlosSoria speaking, the age really is just a number

Recently, the 73-year-old of him,  left home in the outskirts of Madrid again, leaving for Nepal, began his journey of 8000 m peaks challenge, target altitude of 8091 meters, Annapurna peak, peak 10 in the world, his personal 11independent 8,000-meter peaks (in 2005 he had to summit Xixiabangma central peak, this peak is not included among the 14 8000 independent peaks). If successful, according to the plan, Syria will be fully 14 8000 meters peaks to climb in spring next year (in addition to Annapurna, CarlosSoria Dhaulagiri, Kangchenjunga independent peak has not been completed climbing, Xixiabangma just completed Central peak to climb). Last fall he had tried to challenge Road Dhaulagiri but finally the weather reason to give up climbing.
CarlosSoria Chogori, cloth fall Atkins, Makalu, Manaslu and Lhotse age of the world on the summit climber; summit 9 of the 8000 m peak in only a 60-year-oldclimber (includes Xixiabangma central peak); DomeKhang (7260 m), the world’s first summit; climbers to summit the world’s seven continents highest peak after 70 years of age: Elbrus (Europe -1968), Mount McKinley (North America -1971), A empty plus melon (South America -1986), Everest (Asia -2001), Wen Senfeng the (Antarctica -2007), Puncak Jaya (Australasia -2010) and kilima MazarLuo (Africa -2010).The height of 165 cm of the Spanish elderly people should be finished before the age of 75 board 14, but for him to create a record and no longer is the goal, he just wanted to rewrite the elderly with their own actions, “a guide to action” – can also be mountain climbing, can challenge the limits.Age and can become the reason you give up favorite things, “he said,” adhere to the exercise can solve all the problems that age may bring, I will insist on climbing, not to say that the pursuit of what records, but I enjoy it with to the fun. “In addition to the 8000 m mountain climb, Soria has a desire to return to the Alps, climbing the mountain of his attempts in the last 50’s of the world. When he and a friend riding a motorcycle with equipment from the Madrid open to Chamonix.Have a lot I did not climb technical peaks “in the near Chamonix, but now that my physical condition has been unable to complete,” he said, “I now pay more attention to endurance training, like a runners from sprint to marathon training. “Had 46 high altitude climbing experience of Soria has not any serious injuries, he said that thanks to his caution.
