Una joven neuquina se convirtió en la primera argentina en alcanzar la cima del monte Everest, el más alto del mundo con 8.848 metros sobre el nivel del mar, informaron hoy sus familiares.

Mercedes Sahores, de 34 años, residente en Bariloche alcanzó la cima el lunes último, informó a Télam su padre, Luis Sahores.

La expedición fue comandada por el guía de montaña Damián Benegas, quien nació en Puerto Madryn y también vive en Bariloche, y junto a Mercedes fueron los estadounidenses Eugene Rehfeld (63 años) y Johny Collinson (17).

Mercedes, que es apasionada de los deportes de aventura y el kayaquismo, y además es instructora de esquí, se convirtió de esta manera en la primera mujer argentina en concretar esa proeza.

Luis Sahores expresó su satisfacción por el logro de su hija, y confesó que con su familia pasaron las últimas semanas con preocupación y algo de angustia.

«El lunes a eso de las 21 nos llamó desde la cumbre con un teléfono satelital. No se entendía casi nada pero alcancé a oir ’llegamos! Llegamos! «Estamos en la Cumbre y hay un sol espectacularð», relató Luis.

Dijo que fue un momento «muy emocionante y a la vez un alivio», que puso fin a una proeza que duró un mes y medio.

Explicó que los montañistas se instalaron primero en el campamento base del Everest, a 5.500 metros de altura sobre el nivel del mar, para ir aclimatándose.

Luis contó que su hija estaba muy bien preparada para el desafío, como lo había hecho para las diversas competencias en las que participó y también en ascensiones anteriores.

El hombre agregó que la cima de Mercedes se produjo alrededor de las 6 del martes 19 en Nepal, lo que equivale a las 21 del lunes 18 en Argentina.

En la subida Mercedes fue comunicándose por teléfono y por correo electrónico, desde los distintos campamentos en los que instalaban conexiones satelitales.

Además de deportista Mercedes es licenciada en Biología y trabajó con aves, en particular en el Proyecto Cóndor Andino, dedicado hace años a la preservación y estudio de esta especie americana.
