Summit reward on Amadablam 9AM

Mingma Sherpa and his two clients successfully summited Ama Dablam yesterday under good conditions! A month after the departure of our first Ama dablam team, the lines to the summit were finally fixed by a subsequent expedition.

Summit success is often a matter of timing...perfect timing requiring agreeing weather and sound fitness. This season on Ama Dablam hampered by significant snow is yet another strong reminder how much weather and mountain rules the game of mountaineering.
