Today our Ama Dablam kicked off their 1st acclimatization rotation by hiking and climbing up from base camp to Camp 1. Team member J.B. Waterman provides today’s expedition dispatch:
We hiked 4,000 vertical feet today with our packs and our gear hiking with jumaring up the rope to get to this spectacular place on the ridge. We watched the sunset and are settling in. We’re up at 19,000ft, getting ready to eat some dinner, and then grab some sleep.
Tomorrow we’ll head up to Camp 2, touch it, and come back to acclimatize. It’s been pretty spectacular!
