The summit push is on! Garrett and the Ama Dablam team just left base camp moments ago heading for Camp 1. You can follow their progress on this real-time map: https://madisonmountaineering.com/maps/ama-dablam-2020/. Here’s Garrett’s message as they were leaving base camp this morning:
Well, it’s November 9th and we are off this morning on our Summit Rotation for Ama Dablam!
We just had breakfast, packed up, and walked around the puja – doing one last ceremony as we head off here up towards Camp 1. It’ll be a six hour, seven hour hike today to Camp 1. And then the plan is Camp 2 tomorrow night and then wake up around midnight and go for the summit!
So hopefully, we’ll be back down here in a few day’s time. All’s well here and we’re looking forward to gettin’ up on the mountain!
