Our Ama Dablam Team continues to enjoy great weather for the climb. Austin checked in from the ridge between Camp 1 and Camp 2 last night. How cool is that! The nighttime temperatures are a little cooler than normal that reflects the clear skies at night. The Ama Dablam Team is making good progress with their acclimatization. Austin and Kevin touched Camp 2 at 19,350 ft and are spending a second night at Camp 1. Adam Clark and the rest of the Team moved to Camp 1 (18,370 ft) for their first night.
Judging from the photos that have been sent in, the Team is having a lot of fun climbing Ama Dablam!
Over in Gokyo, our 3X3 Team trekked to Fifth Lake and will climb Gokyo Ri tomorrow. Our 2X2 Team took a rest day at our beautiful Lobuche Base Camp and will head over Cho La Pass tomorrow to Thagnak.
All is well in the Khumbu Valley!
