Ama Dablam Autumn 2002

Dan Mazur and his Autumn 2002 Ama Dablam

Today, Daniel, Patrick, Roland and Tom T., climbed to Camp 2 from ABC, carrying super-heavy loads, including ropes, tents, stoves, and gas as well as their personal equipment. The ropes will be used to fix the route between Camp 2 and Camp 3 and the tents, stoves and gas will be set up at Camps 2 and 3. We are working in unison with the German team to open the mountain above Camp 2. Our intrepid load-bearers returned to Camp 1 in the afternoon while our Sherpas and the German Sherpas remained at Camp 2 from where they will start to forge a route to Camp 3. Those who had spent the night at Camp 1, returned to Base Camp for a rest, while Charlie, Randy and Markus carried loads from ABC to Camp 1 and returned to ABC. David and Jay remain at ABC. Marc, Christian and Markus returned to BC from ABC in the afternoon.

Autumn Everest 2002
Stuart, Ken, Ian and Andy Prentice and Jon are resting at BC following days spent at ABC and Camp 1 and are poised to move up again. Brian remains at BC, recovering from a stomach bug. The very kind and assisting Liaison Officers, one of whom is still very sick with AMS, departed BC accompanied part of the way by Ken. We were extremely pleased and grateful for their visit. The weather remains generally favorable to our efforts.

Cheers, Mick.

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

A translation for our French family members:

Daniel, Patrick, Tom Taplin and Roland sont partis deposer de l'equipement personnel ( piolet, crampons, nourritures et vetements) au camp 2. Avant de partir, Daniel nous a gratifie d'une supplement de materiels a amener au camp 2 ( corde, tentes, rechauds et bonbonnes de gaz). Poids moyen des sacs entre 30 et 40 kilos, selon Roland. L'ascension entre le camp 1 et camp 2 est plus technique que les jours precedents, mais tellement plus excitant. Une fois au camp 2, nous avons rencontre Mici le leader de l'equipement Allemande, qui allait utiliser nos cordes et nos tentes pour le camp 3. Au milieu de l'apres-midi, nous redescendu dormir au camp 1, la gorge completement seche toussant comme de vieux phoques. Le paysage etait a couper le souffle, d'ou la gorge seche!

Patrick (Quebec) Bonjour a ma petite amour Karine xxx, on se voit bientot! Roland (belgium)

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