8000 Meters Facts
SummitClimb Ama Dablam
Dear EverestNews readers,
Summitclimb Ama Dablam 2006 expedition member Ben Stuckey saying hello
from Namche Bazaar, elevation 11,200’. We are all enjoying a beautiful
trek in the Khumbu Himal where we are resting for the night on our way
to Ama Dablam. We have a great group of guys on this climb and we are
already getting along famously. The plan for the next few days is to
enjoy a rest day tomorrow before heading up to Pangboche on the 6th and
on the 7th we will arrive in Ama Dablam basecamp. From there we will
spend the next few weeks working our way up Ama Dablam, setting up a
total of 4 camps higher on the mountain. We hope for a summit attempt
somewhere around the 22nd of May.
Dominic says hi to Taz

work our way up to Ama Dablam basecamp.
