We Require a lot of Previous Experience
Ama Dablam is an amazing climb and one of the great Himalayan climbing peaks. If you are interested in signing up with us, you will need a wide range of experience and proven mountaineering skills. We will require that you have climbed with us before as we will only be taking climbers we know and have proven to us they are safe and will work well in a team. You will be climbing above 6,000m/ 20,000 feet on 60/70 degree angle on fixed ropes. Ama Dablam has challenging terrain at extreme altitude. You need to come fully prepared mentally, physically and technically.
A Serious Alpine Climb
At the end of the day on Ama Dablam there is a lot of scrambling, some difficult to severe pitches, a bit of HVS climbing, some grade 3 terrain and lots of Alpine style ground to cover. Put this together into a 6,812m environment where you are in extreme altitude and exposed for back to back days and you can see the importance of being able to deal with an ever changing mountain environment. We do require a lot of high altitude mountaineering and rock climbing experience.
There will be ropes fixed the whole way to the summit. This does not mean to can can roll up with minimal experience. You need to be able to climb steep rock and hard ice unsupervised, carrying a big pack. You need to be psychologically prepared for living high on a precipitous mountain in cold conditions. The route is extremely exposed in places, where a small mistake or fall could be fatal.
