Date Climbed: Jan 8, 2008
|Camped at 4600 m and 5400 m on the North East ridge. The views are great from Ramada but the NE Ridge is mostly just a scree slog. Not terribly enjoyable. |
On the summit I walked around as if drunk. Didn't really acclimitize too well ascending.

|Camped at 5200m. Tried out a line on the snowy north face, but the snow was too soft and shallow. Returned.|
The next day I went to the summit via the normal route in 5 and a half hour. Very nice weather.
Ramada is one of my favorite mountains. So much beauty.
Was a bit worried for some Polish climbers who went very slow as they only had their fifth day in the mountains. Somehow they all managed to reach the 6400m summit!
