Ama Dablam Attempt. Our members were Edward Ramey, Austin Weiss, Chuck Hanaway, Fred Sralam, Clyde Soles and I as leader. We established Base Camp, Camps I and II on April 5, 14 and 16 at 16,000, 19,000 and 19,800 feet on the southwest ridge of Ama Dablam. The party progressed to 21,400 feet (6520 meters) on April 20 but was turned back by heavy, dangerous rockfall.
