Resting done, Summit-push next!

Ready for the Ama Dablam summit bid

For the Ama Dablam team, the resting is done, and the summit-push is next!  Here’s expedition leader Garrett Madison, with today’s expedition dispatch:

Hello, this is Garrett Madison calling in for the Ama Dablam team expedition.

We’re here at Ama Dablam base camp, the second rest day here on November 8th.  The weather is looking good.  We’re planning to head up tomorrow, November 9th, to Camp 1 (5791m) and then the following day to Camp 2 (5944m), then we will go for the summit (6812m)!  The weather’s looking good, route conditions are solid, and we’re excited to begin our summit rotation.

We’re all doing good here and looking forward to getting up on the mountain.  We’ll check in soon.  Thanks!
