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.

Chris Burke made the first summit of Parchermo (6273m) for Himalaya Ascent with Jangbu and Pasang on November 18th! Chris is already heading towards Ama dablam base camp now for her next adventure on our favourite mountain with Lakpa.

Team Pat on way to Camp 2 15-11-12 9AM

Pat's Amadablam team are on their way to the infamous Camp 2 (i.e. a tiny rock ledge on top of a pillar) for their summit attempt. They acclimatized on Lobuche East and are now making a direct attempt on the summit without the need to rotate multiple times on the mountain. They aim to be on the summit on Nov 17.
