jimmy_chin #tbt Always love finding little gems in the archives. This unpublished astral shot of Shivling in the Garwhal Himalaya is a lucky shot I never expected to turn out. The image was the last frame I took on the mountain during a 12 day climb of the Sharks Fin on Mount Meru w @conrad_anker and @renan_ozturk. We had barely pulled off the first ascent of the route and were in the midst of a harrowing multi day descent off the peak. A bit past midnight after almost two days of rappelling, I propped the camera up on a small rock ledge using pebbles as shims to try and get an even horizon line. Conrad and Renan waited patiently while I took the long exposure. Despite being battered and exhausted, it was a moment for all of us to take in the incredible place we were in. Just the cold, the mountains, the stars and us. We still had an entire night of descending left to do, but strangely, life felt simple and straightforward. Keep an eye on your partners. Build solid anchors. Double check your systems…..and don't rappel off the end of the ropes. #Merufilm 2w

jimmy_chin Climate change is a tricky topic. We're all part of the problem, myself included with the amount of travel that I do. We're always faced w tough choices but making decisions from a place of awareness is the first step towards moving the needle. Spending time in the glaciated landscapes of the Himalaya is a constant reminder of the impacts of climate change and the alarming loss of glaciers world wide. One year ago today the Climate Action Plan was released by the White House. This is something I'm happy to support. It sets the stage to cut carbon pollution in the US, provides incentives to explore innovation in new energy technologies and works to better prepare the US from the impacts of climate change. It's not perfect, but it's certainly a step in the right direction. #ActOnClimate

Yours truly climbing and scouting ski conditions on Everest's South Pillar Route. Thanks for the pic @robdski!

jimmy_chin Great shoot on the central California coast for @vanityfair. Here's an outtake from my recent shoot w @gopro founder and CEO Nick Woodman - father, surf bum and now one of the youngest billionaires in the world. I've been lucky to have known Nick for over ten years and seen all that he has done to make @gopro what it is today. So stoked for what he's been able to do. Check his portrait and incredible story in this month's @vanityfair magazine. #gopro 3w

jimmy_chin This is my reason to #ActOnClimate. Glaciers world wide are receding at an ever alarming rate. The ramifications are far beyond the loss of their beauty. @whitehouse announced some exciting news today about taking action on climate change. Stay tuned. @protectourwinters 1mon
