The Mount Ama Dablam and Mount Everest NFB Expeditions, sponsored by the National Federation of the Blind, will make history by placing an integrated team, including the first blind mountaineer, on top the highest point on earth, Mt. Everest, in the spring of 2001.
The expedition will be composed of two climbs. Ama Dablam (22,486 feet/ 6854 meters) is often described as one of the most starkly beautiful mountain in the world due to its dramatic and awe inspiring features. It was attempted in the spring of 2000 as preparation for an attempt of Mt. Everest in the spring of 2001. Although shorter than Everest, it is considered technically challenging with mixed rock and ice climbing above 20,000 feet.
Quokka Sports had daily live coverage of the recently finished Ama Dablam Expedtion. You can relive the expedition by going to the Quokka Ama Dablam minisite where all the dispatches, audio clips, and photographs were first posted.
A gallery of images from the Ama Dablam climb was recently posted.
