Ama Dablam Autumn 2002

Dan Mazur and his Autumn 2002 Ama Dablam

Today, Andy, Tom B., Tom L., Christian, Markus, Paul, Mick, Rex and some of our Sherpas climbed to Camp 2. The route is for the most part, an airy traverse over rock and snow, culminating in a climb of the 25m Yellow Tower, which is where the real climbing begins. There is already one tent at Camp 2 and we hacked at the snow and ice for several hours to make platforms for three more tents. Hard work at 6000m. There is much more snow on the ridge this year than in previous years. Christian, Markus and Rex returned to ABC while the others remained at Camp 1 to continue acclimating to the high altitude. Most of the others are now at ABC and will begin moving up in the next days.

Autumn Everest 2002
Meanwhile, at Base Camp, the extremely kind and helpful Liaison Officers, whom we met before leaving Kathmandu, paid a surprise visit, having arrived on the 14th. They did a great job of helping our expedition and we are very thankful to them. One of them, who complained of a headache when he arrived, is now displaying the classic symptoms of Acute Mountain Sickness and is being ably treated by Dr. Ken.

Cheers, Mick.

All the best for now, from all of us at the Ama Dablam Expedition

a translation for our German family members:

Fuer Mick, Paul, Andy, Thom B., Christian und Markus ging es zum ersten Mal hoch zum Lager 2 (ca. 6000m). Zuvor hatten wir schon viele Fotos vom steilen Grat gesehen. Doch was wir antrafen uebertraf alle unsere kuehnsten

Erwartungen: Bester, plattiger Granit, extrem ausgesetzte Quergaenge und senkrechte Aufschwuenge wechseln sich ab. Nur den wenigsten gelang es, mit Rucksack die Schluessellstelle in freier Kleterei zu ueberwinden (amerik.

5.8.) - mit Plastikschuhen fast ein Ding der Unmoeglichkeit. Atemberaubend ausgesetzt sind auch die 4 kleinen Zeltplaetze bei Camp 2: Mitten auf einer scharfen Gratschneide, links und rechs brechen die Waende senkrecht ab. Zeit fuer die Strecke Camp1 bis Camp2: 1.5 bis 3 Stunden.

Markus from Switzerland

a translation for our French family members:

Aujourd'hui, Daniel, Patrick, Tom Taplin et Roland sont montees au camp 1 afin d'y passer la nuit. On a du amener de la nourriture du camp avance au camp 1, gruau et macaroni au fromage. A notre arriveee, la moitie des tentes etaient occupees par l'autre equipe qui revenait du camp 2. Daniel a du dormir dans une tente de l'equipe Allemande. Patrick et Roland ont partage la meme tente, le nez encombre de Roland genera des ronflements capable de declencher une avanlache.

Patrick (Amos,Quebec) et Roland (Belgium)

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