Asia, Nepal, Ama Dablam, North to South Traverse

Ama Dablam, North to South Traverse. It was reported that a team of climbers summited Ama Dablam via the north ridge and descended along the southwest ridge. The north ridge had not seen a successful ascent in 13 years, but on October 19 Friedl Huber, Max Berger, Lois Badengruber and Roman Dirnbok summited after leaving Base Camp on the 15th. It was the goal of the party to climb with minimal equipment in alpine style. The descent down the southeast ridge took the party a further two days leaving no equipment behind. (Klettern 97)
