Adrift in Chad…5 days from the nearest road, we ran into these two Bedouin deep in the Sahara that had presumably crossed through the porous border between Libya and Chad. If the gentleman in the second photo looks a bit disappointed, it's because I stalled when he offered some of his precious curdled camel’s milk. Trying to regain some standing, I exaggerated a large draw trying to keep a straight face as the warm chunky fluid hit my lips. I don't think he bought it. The two men shaking thier heads at the rookie desert dwellers, smiled politely w their eyes and continued off towards the horizon. I dug through my pack looking for a handful of cipro...
Always a fun romp through the mountains w @alexhonnold and co. Alex on the top of South Howser Tower contemplating the descent....always good to remember the summit is only half way.... @yeti@thenorthface

Alpine dreams....Still on the tick list.... The Torre Group, Patagonia, Argentina
One of my first trips to the Karakoram was with @conrad_anker and @brady_robinson. Here Conrad begins what turned out to be a fairly exciting descent on K7 after a three day storm. Still remember being lowered down a steep coulior riding a haul bag, trying to find an anchor, all the while getting smoked by spindrift. #typetwofun#ridingthepig@yeti@thenorthface
The places climbing can take you....Djenne, Mali. @thenorthface is sharing the passion of climbing by donating $1 million to the Trust for Public Land to help build public climbing walls in U.S. communities. Some believe walls are meant to divide, while some believe walls are meant for climbing, for connecting and bringing people together. Check the link in my bio to learn more. #climbwalls

I’ve spent a good amount of my adult life traveling and searching for walls to climb. The pursuit has led me around the world and given me some of my most treasured experiences in life. In short, climbing has given me meaning and purpose, it’s been an incredible vehicle to see the wild landscapes on the planet and has connected me deeply to people and places. Happy to know @thenorthface is doing it’s part to share this passion and is donating $1 million to the Trust for Public Land to help build public climbing walls in U.S. communities. Some use walls to divide, I believe walls are meant for climbing, for bringing people together and for adventure.

Fun little mission into the Sierra last week with an all time crew. Always a pleasure to get to know new friends in the mountains....especially when things get exciting. @myshellparker watches as the storm begins to brew. Half an hour later we were dashing down the descent to safety as the thunder and lightning crashed around us. No summit but if you count laughs as your measure of success, we were winning.... #goodtimes#iphoneglory
An epic day in the high Sierra being chased by storms ends in a tranquil moment at the foot of Mono Lake. Gotta love the the Sierra. I spent much of my twenties driving up and down hwy 395 between trips to Yosemite and getting a taste for the fine alpine granite of the East Side. Always feels a bit like coming home. 8.16.17 @myshellparker@codytownsend@gpmartinphoto
It's always good to remember there is still great beauty, strength, respect and integrity in this world despite all the cowardice we've been inundated with in the news. It's 2017.... pull it together folks and demand people and our president act like respectable intelligent human beings.
@hanahliving just posted a great new Rituals vid of @ian.walsh's daily routine and how he stays on top of his game. Awesome to get a stack of shred days in w him on the mountain this year. So much respect and admiration for this guy. Check the link in my bio to see Ian's life on Maui. Epic pic from @zaknoyle of @ian.walsh doing what he does best. #hanahliving
I'm a terrible wildlife photographer. I can't sit still for more than 30 seconds so to get a wildlife shot they have to pretty much run or fly through my frame....which is basically what happened here yesterday. Baldy over some smokey Tetons... @jacksonhole

A fine way to end a fine day in the Canadian Rockies. @sonnietrotter taking stock of the light show in his backyard.

To see from above what we could not see from below....I can't remember who's quote that is....maybe Gaston Rebuffat? Regardless, I'm reminded of it every time I head in the mountains to clear my head, grind through the mundane complications I've created in my mind, only to see it all anew.
