Alex Txikon wants to make history again in the early months of 2019. The Biscayan mountaineer aims to achieve what no one has: to reach the summit of K2 in winter.
Everything is ready for the tenth edition of the Gran Trail Trangoworld Aneto-Posets with more than 3.700 runners expected next weekend in Benasque (Huesca).
With renewed energy and the experience obtained during last year's expedition, Alex Txikon and his team return to Everest for the first winter summit without artificial oxygen in history. Not yet achieved, the last winter expedition dates from 1993. Only fifteen mountaineers have reached the summit, but all of them with the support of artificial oxygen.
