Ama Dablam Autumn 2002

Dan Mazur and his Autumn 2002 Ama Dablam

The weather this morning was sunny and calm and beautiful. We are sorry to report that Clayton Kuhles left us today, escorted down to Lukla together with the cook boy Phurba. He said that he was happy to see Ama Dablam again (having been here last October as well), and that he was now ready to continue his journey on to Burma, his next destination, where he plans to travel to and climb the highest peak in Burma, Hika-Kabo-Razi. Today we had our Puja ceremony where the Sherpas strung prayer flags, and the Lama blessed the expedition and various articles from the team members and our fixed ropes and helmets, complete with a few drops of Everest Whiskey.

Mazur Ama Dablam Route
Dan Mazur
Autumn Everest 2002
The team is starting to gel nicely. Everyone is excited to be able to see the route from various points along the ridge to ABC. Some members returned from an overnight stay at ABC which included a walk over unstable talus and boulders up toward camp 1. Ken and Stuart proving that it is possible to "surf" on talus. Several other members made the carry up to ABC for an overnight stay. Wendy and Mike passed the day playing Gin Rummy, listening to music and reading. Mark, Randy (who sends his love to wife and family), Dave (who wants to hear from his SO) and Charlie (who thinks of Dia Mia often) along with Patrick, Jon and the Prentice brothers lounged around taking advantage of a nice morning and outstanding views of Ama Dablam and the surrounding mountains. Spending too much time in BC could result in a serious overweight problem as the food is great. The staff are very hard working and concerned with our well being. The afternoon arrived with the usual round of cooler temperatures and some sleet. The arrival of the Australian Women's trekking group added some cheer to the cook tent. The staff provided popcorn and cookies to accompany the hot drinks we have come to know and love. Dan and Jay were joined in BC by the indefatigible Rex who had spend several days establishing the tents at ABC. Go Rex. Just prior to leaving for ABC Paul was observed removing a very large rock which had somehow been slipped into his pack. The perpetrator of this heinous event remains unidentified.

Yours Sincerely, from all of us at the Ama Dablam expedition

Best Regards From All Of US on the Ama Dablam Expedition from www.summitclimb.com
