Up to Ama Dablam Base Camp!

The lat­est news from our guide Seth Hob­by and climbers Mark, Wolf, Hakon, Kat­ri­na, Cathrine, and our entire Nepalese staff is that tomor­row is THE day — Ama Dablam Base Camp — onward and upward!

They left Lobuche East Base Camp (after their suc­cess­ful acclima­ti­za­tion climb a few days ago) with a few cen­time­ters of snow on the ground and hit the trail down to Pheriche for lunch. After that they con­tin­ued down in warm sun­shine to Pang­boche for din­ner and a sol­id night’s rest. It does­n’t take long to get down to the Dudh Kosi from this small vil­lage, and after cer­e­mo­ni­ous­ly cross­ing this riv­er, the trail climbs quick­ly up to Ama Dablam Base Camp at 15,000 feet. Our Sher­pas, porters, and cooks will have already estab­lished camp; so they should slide in in great style, well accli­ma­tized, healthy, and ready to go!

Thanks for checkin’ in and stay tuned for more dis­patch­es from what is arguably one of the finest climbs in the Himalaya!
