I am planning a trip to Ama Dablam, 22,349 feet. The year is unclear as I’m still in planning mode.
Ama Dablam dominates the eastern sky for anyone trekking to Mount Everest basecamp, that’s when I first saw it and was captivated. It’s a gorgeous peak.
The most popular route by far is the Southwest Ridge (right skyline in the photo). Climbers typically set up three camps along the ridge with camp 3 just below and to the right of the hanging glacier, the Dablam.
As with Mt. Everest, the best climbing months are April-May (before the monsoon) and September-October.
I have the gear. I need the team and 1 month vacation.
