Ama Dablam Daily Report: Tuesday 28th October

Ama Dablam Camp I (5400 m)

After a very hard climb, the team arrived at Camp I and pitched their tents on "lumpy" ground (in René's words). The weather today was very good indeed with perfect views of the surrounding 6000 m Himalayan peaks since the camp is situated far above the cloud level.  René is feeling very well indeed, with no adverse altitude symptoms at all. He enjoyed a simple lunch of cheese and salami and has been busy boiling snow to make fresh water for  tea, coffee and cooking. Dinner will be a pre-cooked meal heated up on a small stove carried up to Camp I.
