Waiting for the Weather Window

Celebrating Garrett's birthday at Ama Dablam base camp

While our Ama Dablam team is waiting for the coming weather window to go for the summit, they celebrated expedition leader Garrett Madison‘s birthday at base camp:

Hello, this is Garrett calling in for the Ama Dablam expedition team.  Today is November 4th and we are in base camp.  We’ve been taking a few extra rest days here watching the weather forecast.  It looks like some winds, strong winds, up high and we’re gonna rest a few more days until the forecast shows a good opportunity for a summit window.  So, probably at least a couple of more days here in base camp.

Everyone’s doing well.  We are enjoying some nice weather, good times resting, and we’re looking forward to another great day here in base camp,  All is well!
