First Ascent and Melissa Arnot Top Ama Dablam at 22,348 Feet

Melissa n Kristine in Khumbu - Summit of AmaDablam on 26/10/09

Around 9 a.m.,in the wind and freezing cold, Cory, Chhewang and I stood on top of Ama Dablam at 22,348 feet. The sun was just cresting the summit and the wind made it feel frigid and inhospitable. Around us, we could see amazing views of Everest, Makalu, Lhotse and many other beautiful Himalayan peaks.

Hi Jiban,
Home safe and sound, fighting jet-lag. I spoke with Neil, the CEO for Eddie Bauer, I am not sure what the best way to do but you seem like a good start! Again, Jiban, thank you so much for all of the fantastic logistics. You make my trips so seamless and easy, and treat me like family. Greatly appreciated.
