Ama Dablam: Onward and Upwards

Onwards and Upwards
Andrew and Tim excited for the coming days. 

30 October 2014

Tashi Delek Everyone,

As the sun lays its golden blanket upon the peaks above us and the clouds form a bubble bath in the valley below us, we snuggle into our sleeping bags for the last time at Camp One. The goal is to begin our summit push by moving up to Camp Two tomorrow. The excitement amongst the team is palpable, as our rest days have left us with energy to spare and the desire to move.

Specific numbers of tea bags have been packed, spare pages of notebooks have been cut out, and I think I even saw one member cutting tags off their clothing. We are lightening our loads and as strong as we can be. With our supremely capable Sherpa team and a favourable weather outlook we are cautiously optimistic.

Tim and I have had a busy day sorting last minute details as the remaining team members have prepped their systems. We'll leave you with an unabashed snapshot of a moment where Tim and I took a break, comfy in our down palace.

Moving on up!

Andrew and the Ama Dablam team
