Climbed the peak with Mtn Madness.A great trip with fun people. Ama Dablam had it all: ice, rock, scrambling, killer views, great approach, and a great base camp in a meadow with a stream. My first Himalayan peak and tremendously satisfying.
Big realization: Going much higher would, for me, not be so much fun since the discomfort started to (almost) outweigh the fun of the climb. I'd like to climb some more 20,000 foot peaks. Heck, there's some incredible peaks oin the world all way less high than the 7000 and 8000 meter ones. Even the cascades of Washington are pretty great. ANd, there's plenty of O2 to breathe!
