Suhajda Szilárd, who is preparing to climb the summit of Mount Everest “cleanly” without an oxygen bottle, was in live video contact with his wife on Wednesday at 9:40 a.m. Hungarian time. Based on this, both his physical and mental condition were fine, he said that he was able to fulfill the set goal. However, there has been no GPS signal or new news about the Békéscsaba climber for hours now.
According to the GPS signal, Suhajda Szilárd was at an altitude of 8,795 meters at 15:47 Hungarian time.
The previous signal was received at 13:47, which is recorded at 8,720 meters. From these two data, it can be guessed that the climber from Békéscsaba was still heading towards the summit in the afternoon.
At the moment, we are waiting for actual data to arrive, either from Szilárd or from GPS signals.
Szilárd Suhajda set out to climb the 8,848-meter Mount Everest (Csomolungma) on Sunday. The 40-year-old mountaineer, born in Békéscsaba, set out to conquer the peak, known as the highest point in the world, in the most natural and at the same time the most difficult way, without an oxygen bottle or Sherpas.
No Hungarian mountaineer has previously managed to reach the summit of Mount Everest in this way, with a “clean climb”, but this is considered a rarity even in the world.
Suhajda Szilárd traveled to Nepal on March 23, where, after reaching the base camp, he completed three acclimatization rounds on the mountain.
