Chris Burke achieved her 1st summit on Amadablam with Lakpa (his 21st!!!!) on Nov 29th. Amadablam has been a goal of Chris' for a while after sickness foiled her 1st attempt in 2010. Feeling fit off Parchermo this time around, Chris topped out in good spirits, even after they were pushed back to base camp during the 1st summit bid by strong winds. Due to the lateness in the season, Chris enjoyed the mountain alone without other teams. A real treat as Amadablam is a popular peak in autumn.
