The Incredible Hulk under my wing! Insane mountain flight today with @sarahhalas. I'm still learning so much every day. The classroom doesn't get much better

Is that a smile or a grimace? 🤔 Thankfully the @brokenarrowskyrace video (*link in profile*) has released far enough after the race for me to have mostly romanticized (or forgotten) the suffering 🤣🤣🤣 // Seriously, one of my favorite days of the year so far - amazing terrain and course, an inspiring group of runners of all levels, and so much cheering, laughter and fun all right in my backyard. Don't miss this incredible race next year!

@mesarimreno is open, and it is awesome! We already had a sweet bouldering spot @basecampreno; now we have a stellar rope/bouldering/training facility. I am beyond impressed. No more excuses to get strong before the Red this November! Congrats to the whole team that made this place possible. It's huge for our community!

The East. I don't get back enough, but every time I do I remember why I loved growing up here so much. The East doesn't get any better than the New River Gorge. So green, so much water, and the passion is so strong for climbing and boating and the outdoors. It's energizing...especially with the group I spent the past 36 hours with. I was asked to speak at a @navysealfoundation legacy camp. Pretty quickly I realized I would be getting just as much inspiration as I hoped to give. The students, the mentors, the staff - everyone put their hearts into the camp. Whether it was rafting, swimming, wrestling, listening, learning, or supporting their teammates, I was surrounded by 100% effort, inquisitiveness, a willingness to try and fail, and, of course, talent. Our future is bright.

Watching the sunrise from a plane at 20,000 feet this morning felt just like this one two weeks ago at 20,000 feet on Tocllaraju in Peru. Well, maybe that one was a little colder... but we got to go skiing after watching that one! ☃️ #perutrilogy#datemonth // @blizzardskis#freetoexplore

Summit vibes on Aconcagua (22,841' / 6962m) last January! Not only is Aconcagua one of the seven summits, but it is the tallest peak outside the Himalaya. Which makes it the ideal training ground for 8000m peaks like Cho Oyu and Everest. Check out joining my team this January!

#athleteormodel? It seems that @dogcalledcat is going to fit right in with this family. I swear my feed is not permanently going to be taken over by puppy photos. If you want more, give Cat a follow // #rescue thanks to @rocketdog_rescue. You guys are the best!

When all flights are inexplicably cancelled and you're stuck in a weird industrial oil town in a hotel with no coffee and you've got an important slideshow to give and your photos and videos from Everest have disappeared and the rescue dog you just adopted is waiting to meet you at home and your girlfriend has decided #datemonth is definitely over and doesn't want to talk to you anymore... @alpinestartfoods saves the day. No really, this is not an #ad, Alpine Start is literally saving me. Thank you @mattsegal and team! // #perutrilogy

#datemonth coming to a close...no way to encapsulate it all in 1 post...just wow. The girl, the country, the friends, the adventures. One of my favorite months ever! #perutrilogy

Vacation goals (this is not me...yet) ♂️
@emilyaharrington nailing the shot with her @samsungmobileusa Galaxy S8. I've been using and loving the phone since Everest. So it's had a lot of time being tested in the big mountains. Figured it was time to give it some beach testing ⛱ // Em and I are taking over the @samsungmobileusa insty story account for the next 24 hours! For a look at Mancora on Peru's Dia de la Independencia, join us there!

#TBT- With no easy route to its summit, climbing Ama Dablam (22,525' / 6866m) is reserved for dedicated alpinists and it is the ideal stepping stone to more independent expeditions on big Himalayan peaks (Everest!) I would be stoked for you to join us in October 2017! :@chadpeele

Sometimes you gotta trade mountains for beaches. Don't worry, somehow I'll make it through these tough times ♀️
After a 13-hour Base Camp to Base Camp, 6000-vertical foot climb and ski to over 6000 meters, I've never appreciated my ski kit more. The @blizzardskis Zero G 95 and @tecnicaskiboots Zero G Guide Pro balance light weight and stellar ski performance in a way I've never had previously. On Tocllaraju we found steep firm no-fall terrain with big crevasses up high, and huge fun endless moderate slopes down low. The Zero G goods crushed it all and gave me huge confidence. And oh yeah, they're light enough that I didn't cry during the hour 12 walk back down the moraine. ⛷

@emilyaharrington earning it on the last slope to the summit of Tocllaraju (6034m/19,790 ft) two days ago. What did she earn? A summit, a long long ski descent, and the amazing meal @mitsuharu_maido in Lima that we're about to go indulge in

What to say....go out and buy @outsidemagazine and read Cory's story (and stare at that beautiful man on the cover 🤣). Seriously, for two years @coryrichards has been an inspiration, a challenge, a climbing partner, a best friend and a brother. I couldn't have stood on top of Everest without O's without him. But I respect and honor so much more than that in him. Cory spends every day trying to understand and improve himself. And through that process he inspires and challenges me to do the same. Our trips are filled with passionate debates, laughter, tears (mostly his ), and ultimately sharing and searching for what's meaningful for each of us. It's what he does, and what he brings out in all of us. And it's why I'll go anywhere with him. Congratulations Dick. Love you brother. #everestnofilter
Need a reason to celebrate 'national mountain guide' month? How about 10% off rock climbing in Lake Tahoe with @alpenglowexpeditions? Confirm your reservation by July 31 for a day of rock climbing during the month of August. Just tell them I sent ya! :@oldmantalbott#adventuredoneright
The Sphinx and @emilyaharrington facing off after Day One's battle. We got on top. But it wasn't easy. 2500 feet of granite cracks, slabs and massive runouts, all above 15,000 feet, in below freezing temps after the sun leaves the face at 1pm. We had to fight hard. And we loved every minute.
Everyone should have a #ropegun. They make climbing so much fun. Here's mine, @emilyaharrington, topping out another immaculate 7a arete in Hatun Machay last week. // Today we go test our acclimatization. We're headed in to La Esfinge (The Sphinx), an almost 3000 foot granite big wall that tops out above 17,000 feet. No cell signal for 5 days, so updates to come at the end of the week! // @lasportivana
If you missed it the first few times, you have one last chance (this is it, I promise) to see the #EverestNoFilter ESPN special this weekend! It was loads of fun to work with this team over there and I think they did a bang up job capturing our journey!! Upcoming re-air dates: July 8 at 1pm PST on ABC, & July 9 at 10am PST on ESPN2 !! #liveyouradventure
Lovers Leap is one of my favorite places to climb in Lake Tahoe! Located along the South Fork of the American River, the towering cliffs have long drawn climbers to this area. Some of the absolute best climbing in California, known for steep and exposed rock, yet enough variety that there is something for everyone. Join us this summer!

So much stoke today as @emilyaharrington, @estebantopomena, the @alpenglowexpeditions crew and I saw the mountains of the Cordillera Blanca for the first time this season. We've had so many adventures here over the past 2 decades. And just planned another 2 decades worth. I can't think of a better place to re-engage with climbing after a month of recovery and reflection. #perutrilogy
