Hello SummitClimb AmaDablam Expedition Blog readers.
Our team has reached camp two, has returned to
base, and is now waiting for completion of the route. Our trusty climbing
Sherpas are in a "holding pattern" awaiting the outcome of a high-wind alert.
According to the 4 weather forecasts our office
have been studiously checking each day, supposedly the winds should reduce on
or prior to 3 November. After that our Sherpas plan to fix ropes to the summit
and we hope to climb to the top of Ama Dablam, Asia's most famous
snow-ice-and-rock climb, before the 6th of November.
Please stay tuned for updates and please do
wish us luck. Thank you very much!
