Here is expedition leader, Garrett Madison, with the expedition recap:
Hello, this is Garrett Madison calling in for the Ama Dablam team expedition.
We are all back in Kathmandu now at the Hotel Yak & Yeti. We summited Ama Dablam together on November 11th. We had a beautiful, clear, perfect day upon the summit. Some of us went all the way down to base camp, others stayed in Camp 2 that night, and the following day we all descended to base camp, had a celebration lunch, and then helicoptered back to Kathmandu!
We just had our team celebration dinner and some members are heading off tonight back home and others will be here for a few days. It’s been a wonderful, successful, and safe expedition here in Nepal. We’re very happy that we got to come and experience the wonderful people with warm hearts.
We are looking forward to returning to Nepal next spring for Mount Everest!
