agreed  Sucess!

ha ha ha, yeah Steven looked like shit near the top of Ramada. Some sort of napping regime every hundred meters. He made it up on Negro when he was a machine near the top.

Acclimization trouble  Sucess!

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.

Route Climbed: Normal Date Climbed: 26 January, 2006  Sucess!

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!
