The Ama Dablam team have once again completed the crux of the route, The Yellow Tower, while making the move to Camp 2 (6000m) on their summit push. Tonight is the night! Within the next few hours, they will start the climb to the summit. Godspeed team! Here’s today’s audio dispatch courtesy of team member, Moe Al Thani from his Instagram feed @moealthani:
This is Moe Al Thani calling you from Camp 2, Ama Dablam. I can see the summit, it’s so close I can touch it. We arrived here like within three hours since we left Camp 1 after the tough hike up to Camp 2. We are feeling really good!
The sherpa team just fixed the fixed lines all the way up to the summit. So now we have the go-ahead to go this evening for our summit push. We will leave around 1 AM for an 8-9 hour summit push to the summit. [Arabic] Keep us in your prayers and will talk to you soon.
