Overview

Ama Dablam was first climbed in 1961 by a New Zealand and American team. We will follow the same route, South West ridge. A trek via the Khumbu valley provides great views of Ama Dablam.

Once established in BC we will move to Camp 1 (5300m), via a long slope to the beginning of the South West ridge. This is where the technical climbing begins and the route follows the spine of the rock ridge leading directly to camp 3. The very exposed nature of the route makes for an exciting climbing. On summit day, the route winds alongside the ice cliffs, then follows the snow directly onto the 6856m summit.
