Ama Dablam Base Camp (4650 m)

The team climbed to Advanced Base Camp (5424 m), also known as "Yak Camp", today in 4 hours and returned to Base Camp in 1 hour 40 minutes.  René rested for most of the afternoon and reported that this had been the "hardest day yet".  He was definitely feeling the effects of the altitude.  The Puja ceremony, where the climbers are blessed, will take place tomorrow before the really serious climbing begins.
