  Tshering Pande Bhote (Nepali) and Sigrid H. Hammer (Norwegian) summit  Ama Dablam after the deaths...


Tshering Pande Bhote (Nepali) and Sigrid H. Hammer (Norwegian) scaled the Mt. Ama Dablam on 24th Nov. 2006 at 1:00 pm with clear weather and spectacular view. The temperature was very low. It was first ascent after the sad accident at camp 3(6100m) from south face (normal route). It took 19 hours from camp 2 to summit and back to camp 2.
  • Start from camp 2 at 2 AM
  • Summit at 1pm
  • Back to camp2 at 19 PM

The condition was very poor to summit because of lots of grabble snow, blue Ice and strong wind. We have to do alpine climbing all the way above camp3.

Tshering call and said:”He thinks probably all the recovery are at camp3 under the big block of Ice and snow.” According to him he saw the Grivel Crampons and Petzl harness inside the snow and ice.
