Ama Dablam. This Swiss expedition climbed Ama Dablam by the normal south-ridge route. All six members reached the summit. On October 22 leader Pierre-Antoine Hiroz, the only French member Pierre Dutrievoz and Yves Rau- sis went to the top. Four days later the other three did so too. They were the leader’s sister Marie Hiroz, Guy Formaz and Stéphane Borgeaud. The first group had two camps above Base and the second had three.
