For many mountaineers and alpinists, the Southwest Ridge of AmaDablam is the dream climb.  Moderate rock, ice, and steep snow climbing leads along knife-edge ridges and up a steep headwall to one of the most prominent and awe inspiring summits in the Himalayas.  In order to acclimatize and enjoy even more mountain scenery, we climb Island Peak first.  It is possible to climb only Island Peak if desired, which allows group members of different ability levels to participate in this expedition.
