ama-dablam-6812m-20

Ama Dablam (6812m) is situated in the Khumbu region of Nepal. Ama is the Sherpa word for Mother. Dablam is the name of the traditional double pendant, worn by Sherpa women. The long ridges on each side are said to resemble the arms of a mother protecting her child, the hanging glacier the Dablam. Ama Dablam dominates the skyline for several days, on the route to Everest Base Camp. The first ascent was by the South West ridge, by Mike Gill (NZ), Barry Bishop (USA), Mike Ward (UK) and Wally Romanes (NZ), in 1961. Jeff Lowe made a solo ascent of the wildly fluted south face, in May 1979. In autumn of 1979 Louis Absorber, climbed the north ridge. MiriSmid (Czech) made a solo attempt of the west face. The North West face has also been successfully climbed by Carlos Buhler and Michael Kennedy. This face can only be seen by those climbing on Island Peak, Lhotse or high on Everest. This was a formidable and potentially dangerous challenge. In 2006, 3 climbers and 3 Sherpas were killed in an avalanche. This a technical climb and only recommended for the experienced climber and not novices.
