Ama Dablam Expedition 11/11/08 dispatch
Hello friends and family! This is Seth calling in from base camp. On November 11th we went out from base camp at 4,600 meters and cruised into advanced base camp at 5,200 meters. The team had some good gain going above 17,000 feet! We had a nice day with great weather.
After having a short snack at advanced base camp, we came back to base camp to have lunch and rest for the remainder of the afternoon. Our team is doing really well. It’s amazing that it only took us 2 hours to get to advanced base camp and only 1 hour back down to base camp. We are happy that everyone is in good health and feeling positive!
