Austin checked in this morning from Ama Dablam Base Camp. The Team had a great rotation up Ama Dablam, touching Camp 2 (19,350ft.) and spending 2 nights at Camp 1 (18,370ft.). The combination of technical climbing and altitude is challenging on this rotation. One of the more technical areas of the climb is the Yellow Tower (19,200ft.). The Team has done a good job and has earned a few days’ rest at Base Camp.
The Team is on schedule and doing a good job taking care of themselves. We want to give everyone plenty of time to gather strength and be ready for their summit rotation.
All is well on Ama Dablam!
