In 2003 we had the great opportunity of being able to participate in this expedition. I organised it and the ones that were involved realised it a was a one time opportunity. We couldn't back down. To have the money, the team, the gear and good weather in order to climb on a 8848 m mountain is extremely rare. There was one motivation, it was our 'PHD' in mountain climbing. I think it was our greatest achievement because we managed to reach the end and come back alive. I don't know when there will be another expedition of this sort in Romania. 

Our motto was 'A step higher, a step forward'. We wished to demonstrate that Romanians can do it too.'
