2007: Ama Dablam
Expedition Update from Jay
Jay reports in live:
Hi it’s Jay here for SummitClimb updating the latest for the Ama Dablam
Spring Expedition 2007. We’re not having a whole lot of luck the last couple
of days. We tried to go to Camp 2 yesterday, got our asses severely kicked in
the storm and had to retreat back to Camp 1. Today we were going to go to Camp
2 again but the weather was looking decidedly snotty so we’re currently
hanging here in Camp 1, just going to wait and see what the weather is going
to do. But everyone’s healthy, everyone’s well, and yeah, more news soon. Bye.
Jay reports in live:
Hi there this is Jay Reilly updating the latest news for the
SummitClimb International Ama Dablam Spring Expedition. It’s first thing
in the morning here, so forgive me if I sound a little bit croaky. We’ve
just spent our second night here at Advanced Base Camp at 5300 meters.
It’s an absolutely stunningly beautiful day today without a cloud in the
sky, no wind. We did a load carry to Camp 1 at 5800 meters yesterday and
we’re going to move ourselves to Camp 1 today and slowly start making
our way up the mountain. Everyone is feeling fine, everyone’s happy,
we’re all good and that’s about it. I will call in in a few days time
with some more news. Bye.
