Ama Dablam Expedition 11/14/08 dispatch
Hello friends and family! Seth here calling in from Camp One with today’s dispatch. Today we had a big day; the team woke up at Camp One after a long nights rest and everyone felt healthy after our first night sleeping at altitude. The team was feeling good so we decided to climb up to the lower ridge. We enjoyed many pitches of great climbing in the sun from Camp One to Camp Two on beautiful golden granite! It only took us 2.5 hours to reach Camp 2. We then headed back down to Base camp, stopping at Camp 1 to have a small snack and rest. Now we are back at Base camp and we are enjoying a big dinner. It is a nice night tonight here at Base camp, we are happy to have clear weather.
So the team is feeling good, we have a rest day scheduled tomorrow so we are going to sleep in! Now we are headed to bed after a long full day. We will call again soon to relay our future plans for summit attempt that’s coming in the near future! Everyone is healthy and happy and sends their regards to loved ones back home. Over and out!
