Summit Success on Ama Dablam! Here is the update we just received from Guide Chad Peele:
“After several days of resting in preparation for our summit attempt it was “go” time! We were all anxious to go for the summit as we had spent several days watching the first teams of climbers move onto the summit and now it was finally our turn. After a casual breakfast of coffee with two fried eggs and toast, we packed up and started our final push on Ama Dablam. We quickly bypassed Yak camp and moved onto the start of the fixed lines to our tents at Camp 1 where we would spend the night. The move from Camp 1 to our next camp was a going to be a big day, so after dinner and hot tea we buried ourselves into our sleeping bags for an early bedtime.
