Some of you may be thinking, hang on a minute, Ama Dablam is not one of the 7 Summits; why are you climbing it. There are probably 3 reasons for it:
A very beautiful and technical mountain - it is on most climbers' wish list. A great trek up the Khumbu valley and a real challenge to climb.
Apart from the usual one of the level of support you want for the climb, you also need to decide how to acclimatise. You can either do that on the mountain as you provision your advance camps, but a more interesting option is to climb one of the other, slightly lower mountains in the area which should get you acclimatised to a higher altitude and you do then have time to recover when at AD base camp.
The expedition is roughly structured as follows:
