#Different Camps at Ama Dablam Expedition
Let you first know about the different camps of the Ama Dablam. There are three camps above the base camp before we summit the panoramic mountain i.e. Ama Dablam. The ascent from Base Camp to Camp 1 is technically challenging. From Camp 1, we move ahead following existing fixed lines. If necessary we will make new ropes for both ascent and descent. Composition of mixed rock, snow and ice makes the climbing form Camp 2 to camp 3 more difficult. After we step on the peak, we return back to the base camp.
The Ama Dablam Base Camp is used as the base station for the span of our Ama Dablam campaign in Nepal.
Climbers must pass through the hardest and the toughest part of the journey, passing through the difficult saddle ridges. after that we should turn to the north climbing up through the rocky ground and through the boulders until we finally reach Camp 1. From Camp 1, one must cross the rocky bowl and should climb the ridge with the help of fixed lines to reach Camp 2.
The climbing route from Camp 2 is mostly covered with steep alleyways mixed with rock, ice and snow. From this camp, we move forward to our zenith and begin climbing to the ridge and move eastwards leading to the gully between the Grey Tower and other rocky structures until we reach Camp 3.
We start our push for the summit from Camp III following the southwest ridge to the crossing many dangerous and deep crevasses. It’s a steep climb over ice and snow until we reach the top.
