AMA DABLAM SOUTH WEST RIDGE
Ama Dablam's South West Ridge is one of the most aesthetic climbing routes in the Himalaya. It is renowned as a 'must-do' for any committed alpinist, with an exposed rock ridge, dotted with towers and intricate climbing leading from Camp One to the summit ice fields.
Accentuated with outrageous exposure the route offers spectacular views of the Everest Massif - the panorama, if not the altitude, will take your breath away.
- One of the most aesthetic mountains on earth
- Exposed and varied climbing at altitude
- A ‘must do’ for any committed alpinist
The Ama Dablam South West Ridge expedition is befitting for technically oriented climbers but is never extreme. You need good mountaineering skills, some altitude experience and an adventurous attitude.
On the final day of the climb, the route follows steep snow and ice slopes, accentuated by outrageous exposure directly to the summit.
