Ama Dablam. In March and April, Irish climbers comprising Cornelius Moriarty, Ciaran Corrigan, Pat Falvey, Tony Farrell, Mick Murphy and Mike O’Shea were on the southwest ridge of Ama Dablam. They had bad weather and several of the party were incapacitated by food poisoning. Mick Murphy reached the summit alone on April 4 after Corrigan had turned back with respiratory problems. This was the only pre-monsoon ascent of Ama Dablam.
