"Hard Master" Xia Bo: To achieve the dream "endless climb"

Original title: "Hard Master" Xia Bo: For more than 40 years of dream "Endless Climb", I have struggled with the disease, encounter ice, avalanche, earthquake, blizzard during the mountaineering process, but I have been still insisting. "At the interview with the People’s Network, Xia Bun took out the precious mountaineering notes, telling the history of the climbers," Although I don’t have a foot, I can’t lose to anyone.

"" Stepping on the step, I will fall into the Wanzhu "People’s Network: From the first climbing Everest to the top of the top, you used 43 years.

When do you want to give up? What supports you persisted? Xia Bo: I didn’t think about giving up.

Dougle peaks, there is no back to me.

I have a heart to go to the Pearl, but I don’t dare to definitely be able to board it. Mountaineering is my favorite sports, but unfortunately the first time Dengfeng is frozen.

I think, even though I don’t have a feet, I can’t lose to anyone. Finally challenge, with the belief of fate, I have been working until now.

For more than 40 years, I have strived with the sick and suffered Ice, avalanche, earthquake, blizzard during the mountaineering process, but I have been insisting.

People’s Network: In May 2018, do you worry if you still fail during the shooting of "endless climb"? Xia Bo: Before every time I started, I would like this may not succeed, I can’t come back, I will do everything for this.

At that time in May 2018, the same as every mountaineering, I insist on exercise, and the mentality is not different.

People: Mount Everest the moment, what is your first thought is mind? Xia Bo Yu: Mount Everest, in fact, did not imagine so excited. Before the summit did not, I thought I would cry, pose, but then really on board, I had physical overdraft, I sat down, I thought, he is finally over. Then I thought of the family, the tears flow out.

When talking with family, I felt very uncomfortable, I have a sense of guilt for his family, for me to pay them too much, I let them worry about too long. Now the summit, I was thinking how to make up.

People: climbing process, have not encountered a particularly dangerous time? Xia Bo Yu: For me, every step is very dangerous. I must stabilize, step quasi every step.

Step by step on bad, I would fall into the abyss.

Hard down the mountain easily.

After the summit, at the top of the hill I spent less than 10 minutes, the storm suddenly came, everyone was screaming down the withdrawal. Frostbite on my face, the whole face all black, has also been frozen fingers black.

If there are no storms, generally up to 5 hours can be a surprise to the first camp, but that day I walked 12 hours to reach.

Blizzard too, there is a walk, end up with a layer of ice on snow mirror, must hand to pull.

After pull out the ice must be quickly put on gloves, otherwise the hand will be frozen. People: 2019 movie "climbers", the Hu Ge plays the role of the prototype is you.

As the 1975 Everest action of witnesses, can you talk about the situation at the time? Xia Bo Yu: Everest in 1975 and now is very different.

Now the technical conditions are good, the weather forecast is accurate, oxygen is also very adequate, and there is someone for you transport, building camps, roads. But at that time, whether it is climbing devices, equipment, weather, food, or climbing during all other work must be done by the climbers themselves.

However, when the players in order to complete the task given to the motherland, climbing determination is very large. Once, when we hiked to 8600 meters, suddenly suffered a stroke aerial attacks, we stayed there for two days and three nights, exhausted all the oxygen, food, descend to 7600 meters, I have a teammate physical advances, lost sleeping bag.

I did have a nickname called "Vulcan God", not cold, put my sleeping bag to him.

The next day we went to 6500 meters from 7600 meters down, sleep at night, my mountaineering boots tied down, only to find the foot has frostbite. "Focus on your own every step of the way, this is my spirit to climb" People’s Network: your hands this mountaineering note densely filled with words, which records what does? Why has always insisted on record? Xia Bo Yu: Everest notes recorded some details, such as from this place to that place how distant, how long it took, how they feel, what difficulties, like a running account. By notes, I can compare what is the difference between this year and last year recorded content, I’m adaptability, physical aspects have not improved.

Because climbing at any time encounter unpredictable danger, I want to try to remember some detail, if after the unexpected encounter, when a suicide note left for his family, the family can be traced back to the situation through my diary. People: What makes your impressive memories notes there? Xia Bo Yu: Everest in 2015, we suffered a major earthquake, I put that experience recorded.

That afternoon, I was eating tent, ready to assault the summit after.

This is when suddenly an earthquake, the ground shaking was particularly severe, so when I ran out of the tent, heard the sound of thunder, which is ice avalanches, avalanche precursor. I hurried into the tent, bent over clutching tent pole, eyes closed waiting for a minute, until the outside is almost silent, and I opened my eyes just ran out and saw one near the white mountains all around disappeared, faintly see me in front of all those tent blown away by the shock wave. That climbers suffered heavy casualties, I survived.

For safety, and to express respect for the dead, 2015 earthquake that year, we all did not climb to the top, no one mention out of the summit.

People: young people want to climb Mount Everest, what say you? Xia Bo Yu: Everest is a very dangerous sport, must be ready for anything. Not only to prepare the equipment, the physical aspect, but also from the ideological aspect to understanding the difficult climb of Everest. Evolution, not blindly.

One time I got a phone call, a young man called, and said to go to Everest. I asked him what Gordon Hill, he replied, landed Tarzan. I say that you are traveling, not climbing.

He said that was your age, no foot can log in, I’m still young, how can not board it? I told him that I am a professional athlete born, up at five o’clock every day for strength training, weight 10 kg sandbag, squats 150 a set, training 10 groups; chin-up a group of 10, training 10 groups; 60 push-ups in groups, training 8 group; a group of 60 sit-ups, training 8 group, also training biceps, triceps and the like. Then board the ride to the Fragrant Hills, about 11 o’clock in the morning you can go home.

This is my exercise.

People’s Daily: How do you understand the spirit of climbing? Xia Bo Yu: A climber must have the spirit of climbing.

I think that is a kind of fear difficult climb spirit, the spirit of courageous forward. In addition, for me the most important thing is that I during the climb, his eyes still staring at my feet.

Because my feet are prosthetic, it stepped down snow did not feel, only reached the waist when I come to feel. So, someone asked me if I walked a little way, I sometimes do not know, I just focus on their own feet. Focus on their every step of the way, this is my spirit to climb.
