Ama Dablam Update — Moving up
Tuesday, November 17
Hello Mountain Madness. This is Seth Hobby calling in from Ama Dablam Base Camp. The last 3 days we have been here relaxing, resting and enjoying the luxury of basecamp. We had a low pressure system move through and put some snow on the ground, so we have just been hanging tight here. Everyone is happy and healthy and doing very well. We are hanging tough here through today and then moving up to start our summit bid after tomorrow. Our plan is to get to bed at a decent hour tonight and move up to Camp 1 tomorrow.
On Thursday we hope to move on to Camp 2 and right on up to Camp 3 (also known as Mushroom Ridge Camp) on Friday. Saturday will be our first possible summit day. The weather forecast looks good. We have been getting heaps of different forecasts and everything points to an improving trend. The sky is finally clear, everyone is healthy and it is dinner time. We are signing off for now and hope you are all well.
