First day of the summit push, the Ama Dablam team made the move from base camp to Camp 1. Courtesy of his Instagram feed, team member @moealthani provides the recap of the day in this expedition dispatch:
Hi guys! This is Moe Al Thani calling you from Camp 1 (5800m). It’s freezing cold, I’m wearing my big down jacket, enjoying the most beautiful sunset in the world. Behind me is Ama Dablam, it’s so close I can almost touch it but at the same time it seem so far.
Just want to let you all know that we’re doing amazing, we’re doing great! The oxygen and the air is thin, but we’re all strong over here. So, we are looking forward our move to Camp 2 tomorrow and we’ll keep you posted!
