The acclimatization continued around base camp today. Tomorrow the team will head up on the first rotation. Team member Chase M. provides a recap of the day in this expedition dispatch from Ama Dablam base camp:
Hello there! This is Chase Merriam from the Madison Mountaineering Ama Dablam expedition. I’ll be giving you all a brief update on how the trip has been going so far.
So today, we had a short acclimatization hike with some fun scrambling up to about 5000m. And after that, we were organizing our equipment for tomorrow’s climb to Camp 1. The climb tomorrow should be pretty gradual in between 6 to 8 hours long. The whole team is feeling really good and are ready to see the upper mountain in person.
Thanks for listening!
