Ama Dablam Expedition

In October this year I'm going to be leading an expedition to Ama Dablam for Adventure Peaks. This is one of the most stunning and iconic mountains in the world ranking alongside Khan Tengri and the Matterhorn. We plan to use fixed lines to ascend the South West ridge, the most popular route on the mountain but far from easy. This short film gives a good indication of the terrain and the exposed nature of the camps and climbing. There are still places available so if you are interested in climbing one of the worlds most beautiful mountains please get in touch with Adventure Peaks in Ambleside
