Ama Dablam Daily Report: Wednesday 22nd October

Pangboche (3900 m)

The team stayed over in Pangboche as an acclimatisation exercise.  Part of this included a climb of 500 m (vertical) behind Pangboche where spectacular views of Ama Dablam, Lhotse and Everest were enjoyed in near perfect weather.  René particularly enjoyed the sighting of a Lammergeyer (Bearded Vulture) along the way.  There were also very good photographic opportunities which were ideal for inclusion in his MSc on the geology of Everest.  This afternoon, the team members were blessed by a Lama at the Pangboche Monastery.  The group's morale is high and the members are all extremely excited about the prospect of reaching Ama Dablam Base Camp tomorrow (4650 m).
