Ama Dablam Autumn 2002

Dan Mazur and his Autumn 2002 Ama Dablam

Today was a fascinating day. In the morning there was some discouragement. The Germans thought that there was no way to finish the route to camp three and announced they were retreating off the mountain. Then the French called two hours later to announce they had pushed the remaining 100 meters and arrived at camp three by 1:00 pm. This was good news for us and all the groups waiting anxiously in the other camps.

Our first group arrived in camp one with hopes to go to camp two tomorrow. This group includes Ian, Andy, Tom (Scottish) Stuart, Mike, Ken, and Jay. We have three groups that will follow each other through the camps to the summit. At this point, however, no one knows about the conditions to the summit.

Autumn Everest 2002
The snow is unusually deep this year, and everything is still up in the air. Most of the group is healthy and ready. We must continue to listen to Randy tell us how wonderful is wife is.

The weather is strange. Some snow today. We can not afford too much bad weather, our time frame is getting short.

Here is a dispatch for our French family members:

Les nouvelles en debut de journee etaient peu rassurante pour atteindre le sommet, l'equipe Allemande etait sur le point d'abandonner. Grace a l'equipe francaise, ils ont pu continuer la route jusqu'au camp3. L'espoir renait au sein de l'equipe Allemande, ils planifient d'installer les tentes au camp3 ce samedi.Notre premiere equipe est deja installe au camp1 et compte aller au camp2 ce samedi. Notre deuxieme equipe compte partir pour le camp1 ce samedi.Elle sera en principe suivie de l'equipe 3 qui partira ce dimanche. L'inconnu reste la condition d'enneigement entre le camp3 et le sommet. Jusqu'a present, les conditions de neige etaient particulierement difficile entre le camp2 et le camp3. L'equipe Allemande ainsi que quelques sherpas vont commencer l'installation des cordes entre le camp3 et le sommet ce samedi(19 oct) et on aura une meilleure de ce qui se trouve la-haut.Le moral et le temps reste au beau fixe.

Salutations! Patrick ( allo Karine!xxx) et Roland (bonjour au tocar!)

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