Freedom Climb 2013 – Another Summit!

By – Celia Shortt

Ten out of the 16 climbers on Cathey Anderson’s team that is heading back down the mountain successfully summited Ama Dablam Base Camp! The ladies hiked up for 5 hours and then about another 1 1/2 back down to their camp at Dingboche.

“The hike was long, vigorous and victorious at the end. At times, we stopped. We had tea. We had panoramic views of all the mountain peaks around us. It was just amazing and beautiful. It was very exciting to stand at the summit as a group. What has kept me going? Just being a team and encouraging each other.” – Judy Hart
