Ama Dablam: On the Mountain

On the mountain
26 October 2014

Hello Everyone,
Andrew, Tina, and Hamish hike up the hill with 
basecamp in the background

Today we left Base Camp and our cosy teahouse. Overnight we had 10cm of snow so it looked the alpine wonderland first thing this morning. We travelled the same route we had been up a few days earlier up to here to Yak Camp or Advanced Base Camp.

Loaded with our climbing equipment the steeper sections were definitely noticeable. So, as I write, everyone is tucked up in their tents for our first proper night on the mountain up here at 5400m.

Bye for now,

Tim and the Ama Dablam Team
