People You Meet Along the Way: 6800m / 22,300 feet Ama Dablam Summit Success!

AMA DABLAM Summit Success!!! Super happy to report that we summited this gorgeous 6800m mountain yesterday morning and are now safe and sound back in Base Camp enjoying the warmth and food! -20 degrees with a light wind under a clear blue sky and lots of VERY steep, exposed climbing - what an experience!!! Will post more pictures and a full blog update soon. 
Thank you so much to you all for all of your messages of support and for following along via this blog.... and huge thank you to Alpenglow Expeditions guide, Chad Peele, Sherpa Danuru (who were with me every freezing cold step of the way!!) as well as team mates Sergey, Valdiz and Adrian Ballinger for their encouragement, support, humour and for sharing this crazy mountain with me!!

  1. Yeah. Fantastic news. Well done Heather. I've been thinking about your trip whilst I've been luxuriating in 30C 4* hotels ;-)

    Camp 2 looks awesome. Congratulations to you and all your team on your summit success and safe descent back to BC.

    Enjoy your celebrations
