  Summitclimb has more summits on Ama Dablam


Hi, this is Max Kausch calling in a dispatch for the Ama Dablam expedition autumn 2010. Today is the 5th of November and I have some really good news.

8 of us summited yesterday between 12:00 and 2:00 p.m. In group two we had Irma, Adrian and Christian together with Jangbu summiting. In group three we had Sam, Gyalje and I summiting.

It was a great day and very clear. We were very lucky with the weather. We had a really long descent and some of us didn’t get here until about 10:00 p.m., so it was a 22 hour push.

We are all happy here at camp 2, although we’re going to start the descent to basecamp today. We’ll call you from there with more details. We just wanted to let you know that everybody is fine. No one had any issues, we’re all happy, and a bit tired.

Thank you very much for following SummitClimb.com. Bye, bye.

3 November, 2010: Hi, this is Max Kausch calling in a dispatch for the Ama Dablam expedition autumn 2010. Today is the 3rd of November and I have some really good news.

Arne, Andre, and Andries, together with Tenji and Abhi just summited Ama Dablam at 10:30 a.m.! They are on their way down.

Right now I'm at camp 1 and we're heading to camp 2. We'll push for the summit tonight. We plan to wake up at 11:00 p.m. and leave camp at midnight. We hope to make it to the summit at 11:00 a.m. tomorrow on the 4th.

Thank you very much for following the news. Bye, bye.

November 1, 2010

Hi, this is Max Kausch writing a dispatch from BC. Today is November 1st and we are about to leave for the summit push. Our Team 1, in on the way to Camp 1 and Teams 2 and 3 are leaving BC now to sleep at ABC tonight. Dani and Suzie are in Camp 1 and might be pushing for Camp 2 today.

2 expeditions tried to go for the summit yesterday but they had to retreat due to bad snow conditions. It started snowing yesterday during the day and it only stopped this morning at about 7am. The skies cleared completely by 9am. So far, no one reached the summit of Ama Dablam in autumn 2010. There are about 5 climbers now at camp 2 waiting for a good chance for the summit.

This is the news so far. I'll call a dispatch from camp 2 and from the summit letting you know the conditions and the current situation of all our members.
