25th November: Summit success! Andy and Phurba reached the summit of Ama Dablam today in light winds with no clouds to obscure the spectacular view. Well done to you both! They are now in Camp 2 and will move down the mountain tomorrow. Di and Will are in Camp 1 tonight and will be moving up the mountain tomorrow to Camp 2 ready to make their summit bid in the next few days, weather permitting – Good luck!
9th November: Paddy called in this morning to report that the rope fixing teams have made little progress since his last report and have only managed to reach Mushroom Ridge before backing off again due to unconsolidated snow. Tanya has been up to Camp 2 and is now heading back down to Base camp and will walk out with Paddy tomorrow.
