T minus two months to departure for Everest. Lots of people have been asking about the team this year. Here is the beta! @estebantopomena (give him a follow) and I will be attempting a new route on the North side. No oxygen. No support. No guarantee at all. But it's a lot of fun to try! It's been 19 yrs since the last new line was established...we have high hopes but also know how big the goal is. Our brother and grand maestro @adrianballinger will be with us until ABC from where he will branch off onto the normal route with @alpenglowexpeditions Adrian has his own amazing project taking form this spring, so be sure to follow his feed as well. We will be bringing you along as we've done in the past...more details on that to come. Suffice to say, lots of anticipation and excitement in the build to this....so stay tuned. You are an amazing community and I feel humbled by your support. THANK YOU...really. @roam #everest #mountains #adventure #mentalhealthawareness

Forced rest days from fatigue verging on overtraining have me feeling at once anxious and confident. When you're in a training cycle, it's easy to get so absorbed that you fail to see the forest through the trees. In essence, you overlook obvious signs of fatigue in favor of maxing your output for short term gains, ignoring the larger impact that might have on the long term goal. And yet at rest, knowing I'm already incredibly prepared, I can't help but feel like I'm not doing enough... this coupled with the fact that it's easy to replace one addiction with another (yes... exercise can be an addiction) #training #adventure #mountains #mentalhealthawareness

Less than 2% of climbers summit Everest without the use of supplemental oxygen. This year, China has limited the amount of climbing permits on the North East Face to address the environmental impact expedition teams have on the mountain. I am fortunate enough to be of the few able to access the North East Face this spring, and will be attempting a new route in alpine style without supplemental oxygen. I’m so grateful for the positive response you all had with my G2 anniversary summit highlights. In response to this and the upcoming climb, I’ll be posting unseen and uncut footage from my previous Everest expeditions, as well as clips from my current training regimen, as we lead up to my departure from the States and entry into the Himalaya this April. #summitstories #everest #mountains #adventure

Photo @leecohen_pics // @instagrom801 Dave Richards, Snow Safety Director at Alta Ski Area (and my older brother) drops in to what he knows best. His life in the mountains has been markedly different than mine, but equally as impactful. As a former professional skier, full time ski patrol and first responder, Dave has witnessed more mortality in the mountains and life than he can recount. Those experiences extract a heavy toll on even the most resolute and stoic individuals. While our paths have been divergent and even combative at times, it's more than poetic that our lives and relationship are bonded by trauma and advocacy for mental health. Dave's experience is rooted in the overwhelming burden of witnessing the loss of life, often by graphic means, and his voice on the topic echoes the gravity of such experience. I'm humbled by his words and as ever, look up to him as an example. LISTEN TO THE PODCAST in my profile for more on his journey with trauma and mental health. #family #proud #mentalhealth #mountains #adventure

Being in an avalanche is like standing between freight trains going opposite directions at full speed. Snow gets shoved into your mouth, down your throat, up your nostrils, tearing at your clothes and pack. They tell you to try to swim…but it feels like you’re swimming against the current at the lip of Niagara Falls…it’s only worth the effort because the opposite is just too certain a fate. It’s funny how much a single event can shape a life. Even more interesting to me is the many different shades that any single event can be colored. Good. Bad. Right. Wrong. We try to shove our experiences into binary containers when in fact all experience has the capacity to be all things. This photo was taken after thinking that everything was going to be cut short, life snubbed out prematurely. My brain was changed, erupting from trauma shaped fissures of my childhood. And in the same moment, my career was almost instantaneously launched. Trauma brought me to place of understanding much more about myself and others. Career success grew an outsized ego. Trauma splintered me and I drowned myself in alcohol and affection. Career success offered me time to heal. So what result was better? Always returning to the binary question…was this experience good or bad for me?  The answer has always been, ‘Yes'. #natgeo #mentalhealth #adventure #mountains

Staggering into Basecamp we were met with a warm welcome, though this team was not aware of the avalanche we had encountered hours before. •Video 1: Group Hug. •Video 2: Simone welcomed and you can hear him say “There was an Avalanche.” •Video 3: Denis walking into basecamp “thanking me for joining” #grouphug #Mountains #Adventure #Avalanche #MentalHealth #Natgeo

Moments after the avalanche fell upon us, with the sound and force of a freight train, we found ourselves at the top of the wreckage. In a delirium, we had no other option but to dig out, move forward quickly and make our way to Basecamp. This video was taken moments after the immediate shock of the avalanche. Continue to #followme today as I post more footage and images from the avalanche’s aftermath. #Mountains #Adventure #Avalanche #MentalHealth #Natgeo

8 years ago today, on February 4, 2011, Simone, Denis and I began our descent from Camp 1 to Basecamp. Seen here, Denis probes looking for our trail as we enter, unknowingly, into the pathway of a Class IV avalanche. The wreckage would fall moments later from the slope I pan up to in this video.

G2 Summit Footage (swipe through for all 5 videos) Here is the reality behind the images - laborious breathing, heinous winds, each step feeling more insurmountable than the last...and a “Let’s get the **** out of here.” #mountains #aventure #summit #natgeo

Gasherbrum II Winter Summit Anniversary Continued: On this day 8 years ago, Denis, Simone and I made our way from Camp 1 to Camp 2 on the first winter ascent of G2. We probably weren’t fully acclimatized at that point, but had been given roughly a 12 hour weather needle that needed to be threaded by February 2nd, forcing our hand and acting as a catalyst in our final bid. I’ll be posting raw video footage and unseen images my the expedition with Simone Moro and Denis Urubko, so continue to #followme to see the whole story this week from packing to summit to surviving a class 4 avalanche. #mountains #aventure #avalanche #natgeo #Pakistan #mentalhealth #climbing

G2 Anniversary Throwback: Images of Denis Urubko and Simone Moro acclimatizing outside Skardu and being welcomed into the high wasteland of the Upper Godwin Austen Glacier by the Pakastani Army (who loaned us an igloo for our first night there). #tbt #mountains #climbing #mountaineering #photography #travel #pakistan

To begin this week’s anniversary of the G2 climb with team members Simone Moro and Denis Urubko, let’s start with being very honest...in order to be organized, you first must be a sh*t show. Every expedition requires thoughtful and organized  packing. Here is a raw unfiltered time-lapse video of ALL the gear that accompanied me for the climb. I remember the three of us taking turns on the rooftop of our hotel in Skardu, cramped for space, and bleary eyed from being awoken by the predawn adhan. Follow along this week as I continue to post unseen and unpublished images from our winter ascent and avalanche on Gasherbraum II. #mountains #timelapse #climbing #mountaineering #photography

Tomorrow begins the 8 year anniversary of my winter expedition to the 8,035 meter (26,362’) peak Gasherbrum II (aka G2). It was one of the most pivotal moments in my career as a mountaineer and photographer for National Geographic and placed my life on the trajectory in supporting the conversation around PTSD and mental health. I’ll be posting raw video footage and unseen images from my expedition with Simone Moro and Denis Urubko starting tomorrow.  January 29th marks the beginning our 2011 expedition through February 4th, the completion of the first winter ascent of G2 and our near-death experience with a Class 4 avalanche. #natgeo #G2 #mountains #mentalhealth #ptsd

Rounding out the week with a full day of phone calls after an arduous 7+ hours slowly walking up hill with a 30lb pack - fasted. Regardless, all that is on my mind are the mountains. Check out my stories to see yesterday’s training. Pictured here:  Ama Dablam, Khumbu Himal.  Often referenced as the most beautiful mountain in the world, Ama Dablam holds a transcendent place in mountain culture. #nepal #himalayas #mountains #adventure #training #natgeo

On this day in 1993, Al Gore (@algore) was inaugurated as the 45th Vice President of the United States. Though his political and environmental positions have been polarizing, what I appreciate about Vice President Gore is that he has created conversation. I value listening to others’ views and experiences, what drives them to make their decisions, and how they believe those actions will impact the future. Because regardless of political affiliation, that is the shared human experience. I have been privileged to photograph and document change makers through my work with National Geographic, and I learn more about myself and the human condition with every sitting. In every exchange as subject and photographer, I’ve grown both as an artist and as an active participant in the global community. Thank you VP Al Gore. @climatereality @natgeo #algore #natgeo #nationalgeographic #portrait
