  EverestHistory.com: Sergi Mingote Moreno


Sergi Mingote was borne in Parets del Valles, Barcelona in 1971. As a climber he distinguished himself in 1998 when he reached the top of Cho Oyu. Three years later, May 23, 2001 he climbed Everest via the North Side. In 2003 he went back and had another successful climb, this time from the South Side and making history.

In 2003 Sergi was part of the ďEverest50Ē expedition, commemorating the 50th anniversary of Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay. Sergi was one of two Catalan expeditions. However, Catalan was also celebrating the 20th anniversary of a Catalan climber reaching the summit of Everest. Therefore, Sergiís very small group: Sergi, Nima Dorje Sherpa and Thilen Sherpa were  televising the summit and the climb live for Catalonia TV3.

Nima Dorje Sherpa held the antenna and Thilen was the cameraman. There is no line of sight from the summit to base camp and climbing from the South side makes it even more technically challenging due to a topographical radio shadow. Despite the technical challenges history was made on May 22, 2003 when TV3 of Catalonia broadcast from Everestís South Side throughout Europe Sergiís successful summit climb. The connection between Sergi and TV3 lasted 8 minutes while on the summit of Everest.
