conrad_anker #tbt 2012-05-26 08.12.53 Two years ago I met an Indian team descending from the summit of Everest. They had climbed through the night, reaching the summit in the pre dawn cold. As they inched their way down under the guidance of a few watchful Sherpa, I moved up. I was as alone as one can be on the standard route of Everest.
The previous day our team was successful. Dawa Jangzum Sherpa and @emilyaharrington , both on their first expedition , climbed together and made the summit. We sampled rock for the geology profile and no one was injured. Exhausted after 8 weeks of life at altitude, I chose not to go to the summit. About eight in he evening the weather settled into a deep calm and my motivation bounced back. My dream of climbing Chomolungma with out supplemental gas was with in reach. I left at one in the morning, to avoid the crowds and enjoy the benefit of a calm warm day. I celebrated on the summit with Dave Hahn.
Regardless of the commercial nature of Everest in the 21st century, it still is a mountain. By climbing it on the terms of the mountain we get much more out of the experience. Is taking a helicopter over the Khumbu icefall a legitimate ascent? Should you be climbing the mountain if you need 9 cylinders of gas on summit day? The challenges humanity faces on a global scale, overcrowding and resource scarcity, are the same on Everest. #oneverest #neverstopexploring @natgeo #goatfarmatthesouthsummit #voked @khumbuclimbingcenter

  •   mplummary I am starstruck I stumbled on your site. I have been a fan many years. I am one of those couch potato climbers. If I could do it over...anyway George Leigh Mallory is my hero. I have read all. Your book also about your experience finding George. I was awe struck. I read a lot about Alex Lowe. He was another great man, your friend and mountaineer. Sorry if I rambled. Thank you for reading!! 1mon
  •   drjonkedski @conrad_anker I was descending and met you that day just above the balcony..I had been turned away 800 feet from the top only 6 days earlier, but this time I made the top.... It was a calm peaceful morning, I was only with my friend Jangbu... I climbed on only 2 bottles, low flow, 1 up and 1 down. I felt great and hope to try it how you did someday... Thanks for the inspiration #20peaksin30days #neverstopexploring @natgeo @outsidetelevision @thenorthface 1mon

alpenglowexpeditions Pasang Rinji Sherpa is one of our most talented and fun #Sherpa teammates. He's already been hard at work #oneverest getting base camp ready. Our entire team will be together next week in the #khumbu, first for Island Peak, then for #everest. #rapidascent #everest2014 @marmotmountain @lasportivana @goalzero 3mon

adrianballinger #downsuit and #flip flops... It's #packingforeverest time. I've been working with @marmotmountain on their new down suit for a couple of seasons now, and I am so excited for this final prototype. It blows away everything out there on weight, warmth, and functionality! #oneverest #rapidascent #everest2014 #everest 3mon

adrianballinger Our office is cranking on logistics for the spring Himalayan season, and I'm dreaming of the surprises #everest holds for us. Will there be a monster 5-section ladder like in 2011? #oneverest #rapidascent #bouncingandswaying #ladderpractice 4mon

  •   titiritati Ufff.. That's wonderland 4mon
  •   adrianballinger @ajcarlson you are right that these trips can be very expensive. We have lots of members that save for years to get to the mountain of their dreams. The good news is there are amazing mountains here in the USA that are inexpensive to climb and gain experience on. Check out Mt Shasta, Mt Baker, and the Colorado 14'ers! 4mon

vikingr_11 This is one of the reasons I'm off for almost a month..their smile, their good heart, their power of giving love...can only make me a better man. Returning to Nepal after a year is a blessing. I need this kind of adventure (solo) like the air I breath. It's a sort of discovering new challenges and even my own limits.
I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude and appreciation for all your support.
To all my IG friends, once I'm back home I promise I'll take a deep look on your adventures.

See you soon guys, Namasté! #nepal #adventure #wildatheart #himalayas #photooftheday #portrait #exploring #mountains #nomad #nomadiclife #backpacking #vsco #earth #love #peace #soloadventure #oneverest
