The Ama Dablam Team pulled into Base Camp today (14,763 ft). It always feels good when you arrive to your Base Camp and see how nice it is. The Team has met the advanced Sherpa Team as well as a couple more guides that have also arrived. Adam Clark and Phunuru came over from doing a trek in Rolwaling, Kevin Kayl trekked up from Lukla after his fantastic Mera Peak Climb. Our advanced Sherpa Team arrived a couple weeks ago to get a good sight for Base Camp and organize gear and the kitchen. Judging from the photos that Phunuru sent back, I would say that the Team is enjoying the food and scenery
Tomorrow is a Puja Day! The Team will have their Puja in the morning and train in the afternoon. Once the training has been done, our Guide team will evaluate the needs of our Team and begin rotations up the mountain. The Team is strong and excited to do some climbing on Ama Dablam.
All is well at Ama Dablam Base Camp!
