We did it!
3 November 2004    
At 3:30pm, Nepal time and 4:15 Nepal time, the last wave of the AC Ama Dablam team2 reached the summit.
Luis, Pasang Tenzing, Todd, and Phu-tashi at 3:30 and Mark, Joe, and Pasang at 4:15. Beautiful weather allowed us to summit a bit later than usual, and still be back in Camp3 for a late dinner! Sadly, Kate stayed at C3 in support as she felt she gave it all she could just getting here and seems to have pulled a muscle in her arm on the way up. Great effort overall!
Team1 led by Paul, after another loooong day, has reached Camp1 and they are currently tucking into goodies sent up from basecamp. Lucky! Tomorrow will see us doing the same and dropping back to C1, and team1 will head to basecamp tomorrow a full day ahead of us! Did I already mention they were lucky? Anyway, stay tuned for our wrap up party at basecamp! Always a crowd pleaser!

Till then this is Luis and Mark and team2 sending everyone back home champagne wishes and large salads drizzled with blue cheese dreams!
