By Chad Peele I celebrated my 37th birthday in Dingboche while on my way to guide Ama Dablam, and yes, I have several new gray hairs! This is my second trip to Nepal this year.
Around 9 a.m., in the wind and freezing cold, Cory, Chhewang and I stood on top of Ama Dablam at 22,348 feet. The sun was just cresting the summit and the wind made it feel frigid and inhospitable. Around us, we could see amazing views of Everest, Makalu, Lhotse and many other beautiful Himalayan peaks
