Ama Dablam Daily Report: Sunday 26th October

Ama Dablam Base Camp (4650 m)

A quiet day was spent at Base Camp acclimatising, resting and recuperating from the hard climb to Advanced Base Camp yesterday.  The highlight of the day was the Puja ceremony which lasted 2 full hours. It was moving, yet fun. The ceremony was conducted by  Lama Tashi, from Pangboche.  He blessed the climbers' ice axes and crampons, and asked the Gods to ensure a safe passage up the mountain. The climbers are now fully prepared to start on their journey towards the summit. René is feeling very well today after an excellent sleep last night. Tomorrow, the group moves back up to Advanced Base Camp (5150 m) where they will spend the night before moving up to Camp I (5400 m) the following day.
