Rest Day in Base Camp

Ama Dablam Base Camp

Our Ama Dablam team is enjoying their second rest day at base camp after the first rotation.  Here’s Garrett with the update:

Hello, this is Garrett calling in for the Madison Mountaineering Ama Dablam expedition team.  Today is November 2nd, we’re at Ama Dablam base camp, and this is our second rest day after our first rotation up on the route where we spent two nights acclimatizing at Camp 1 and climbing up to Camp 2.

Just taking it easy here in base camp.  Lots of good food, nice weather, and passing the time by reading some good books, watching movies, and just enjoying the nice views here and the friendly folks around.

So, all good here and we’ll check in soon!
