Ama Dablam Base Camp (4650 m)

The team arrived at Ama Dablam Base Camp at 1 pm this afternoon and settled into their tents.  The setting of Base Camp right underneath Mt Ama Dablam is superb.  The weather during the day was beautifully hot though it turned cold during the evening.  The camp cooks, Dawa and Jangbu, provided an excellent lunch of pizza, potatoes, yoghurt and fresh fruit.  During the afternoon, the ropes were set up to practice "jumaring" - ascending a rope with the help of a "jumar", a device which allows a one way rope feed and which is used for climbing steep sections of "featureless" rock where very few hand-holds are available.  Tomorrow, the team will rest and acclimatise before their day trip to Advanced Base Camp on Saturday.
