Camp 3 — Ama Dablam Summit Tomorrow!

Seth called this morn­ing from Ama Dablam High Camp at 600020,669 ft to report that the team is healthy, strong, and moti­vat­ed to go for the top tomor­row. Yes­ter­day two Sher­pas sum­mit­ted, which was great news, as Seth will have very cur­rent beta on the route conditions.

Camp 3 is in good shape and shel­tered from the wind. The move from camp 2 took a quick 5 hours. It was heavy to climb with the packs on at the Grey Tow­er (150 m) and on the Mush­room Ridge they said.

The Nor­we­gians in the crew are dream­ing about ski­ing back home (not sur­pris­ing) and say hi to every­body! Mark and Wolf send their best and are psy­ched to top out, get down, and make it back to see their families.

The weath­er fore­cast looks good and they will go for the sum­mit tomor­row! Hope­ful­ly we’ll get a call from the sum­mit ear­ly morn­ing on Sat­ur­day (west coast U.S. time)

Stay tuned and wish them strong lungs, good climb­ing, and a safe descent! Make it Happen!
