Ama Dablam Expedition (6856m) is one the most dazzling peaks in the Himalaya, if not in the world as well. Placed at the heart of the ‘Everest region’, it perfectly fits on the path to Everest base camp. This expedition to Ama Dablam offers a great, technical ascending experience in a magnificent setting, with many cultural and scenic varieties.
Since its first climb in 1961 by an Anglo-American-New Zealand team, it has been climbed regularly and by many different routes. As you might expect for such a mountain, some of these routes are of the highest order of difficulty.
We start the expedition through the original line of ascent, the South West Ridge. This route gives us a fine and varied climb, sustained at a reasonable level of difficulty and with good camp platforms at strategic points. The climbing provides interest on rock, snow and ice and although of a fairly technical nature, in normal conditions it is never very difficult. Apart from one short section, the climb is objectively very safe.
