Ama Dablam Winter Expedition

The Burgess twins and a Canadian planned an alpine-style winter ascent of the SW ridge of Ama Dablam. No fixed ropes were used up to a point above the Yellow Tower. On 19 December high winds which shook the Yellow Tower itself forced their withdrawal from a point just short of 6,300m.
