IMG guide Liam O’Sullivan reports that the Ama Dablam team had a good summit today on Lobuche Peak, and are now all back down to Base Camp. Tomorrow they head for Pangboche, and from there, Ama Dablam Base Camp. Way to go, team!
Elsewhere in Nepal, our IMG teams are staying busy. On Annapurna 4, IMG guide Eben Reckord reports that the team had a good trip up to Camp 2 (19,500 ft) today, and that they are all tucked into that camp now. During the afternoon, Phinjo and Thunang pushed the route a bit further up towards Camp 3, and their hope is that tomorrow they can finish that next part of the route. IMG guide Jenni Fogle and the Maida EBC trek team with are taking a detour on the way back down the valley, with a visit to Phortse village, the home of many of our Sherpas.
