Amadablam, one of the most beautiful mountains in the world, is a technical mountain for climbing. Although the height is only 6812m it requires steep ice, rock and snow climbing. Normally, three camps are set in the approach above the base camp (4,570m), however, only two camps are used to spend the night. The normal route for climbing is South-West Ridge.
Ama Dablam is known as one of the most impressive mountains in the world, not for it’s altitude, but for it’s beauty, aesthetics and the pure exposure encountered high on it’s flanks. Most parties attempt the SW ridge, climbing expedition style, fixing ropes, ferrying loads, and acclimatizing slowly. The mountain has gained in popularity over the past 8 years. It’s common to encounter high altitude Everest veterans having problems with the technical difficulties encountered on the crux pitches of this climb.
