  SummitClimb AMA DABLAM 2004: Jay reports in on more summit success 10/23 and 10/24 reports!


Jay reports 10/23 and Jay reports in on 10/24/2004

October 23 Dispatch -Hello from Jay Reilly of the SummitClimb Ama Dablam Expedition! Sorry for the short dispatch yesterday, I'm not really used to having my voice broadcast over the internet, so I'll try and make up for it today. Group 1, which consists of Mark, Fabrice, Herve, Marc, Paul, Phil, Kay, and Jordy, are on their way back down to Camp 1, and possibly Base Camp today, after a succesful and safe SummitClimb. We've had some more summit news too. Group 2 - Jason Thomas is the leader - consists of Adam, Dave, Wanda, Derek, Paul (from the UK), and Simon; they have summitted today at approximately one o'clock this afternoon, and are now on their way back down to Camp 3. Group 3, led by myself (Jay), consists of Rex, Ken, Guan, and Johan. We are almost all into Camp 3, there are 2 more members just making their way up the last little final stretch. We had a fantastic climb today, the route is in awesome condition, and it is a beautiful day to be sitting up here at Camp 3 at 6300 meters, and looking down over a sea of clouds. Group 4, which is led by Anthony, and consists of Elselein, Vincent and Caroline, is making its way to Camp 2 today. So that's our news, we'll be calling you again tomorrow, hopefully with some summit news from Group 3. Bye for now, from SummitClimb.com!

October 24 Dispatch -This is Jay reilly of SummitClimb calling from Camp 3 on Ama Dablam. I want to leave a dispatch for October 24th. We had some good summit success today, Group 3, which was led by me (Jay) and consisted of Rex, Ken, Guan, and Johan, all summitted today at approximately 11:45 am. We believe that we have placed the first Taiwanese climber on the summit of Ama Dablam, but we will have to wait until we get back to Kathmandu to confirm this. Meanwhile, Group 2 has made its way back down to Base Camp today, so they're probably eating pizza and yak steaks as we speak. Group 4 has arrived up here in Camp 3, it is led by Anthony, and consists of Elselein, Vincent and Caroline. They also have with them a sherpa, or sherpani, called Nima Dolma. She is 17 years old, and we're hoping to put her onto the summit tomorrow, which would break the record that we hold - of putting the youngest woman on the summit of Ama Dablam - that we accomplished last year with Camille Kinny, who was 20 years old at the time, and from Australia. So, if we can put Nima Dolma on the summit, we will have broken the record for youngest woman to summit Ama Dablam for the second year in a row. That's all I have to report, I hope everyone is well, and I will call again tomorrow. Bye for now, from SummitClimb.com!
