Day 10 on our Greenland expedition and it's already been one hell of an adventure. Of the 10, we've spent 6 of these days stuck in sea ice, gently imprisoned on our little boat out at sea with our Icelandic captain Siggi at the wheel. It didn't stop us from seeing polar bear, seals, climbing icebergs, catching fish, diving and watching insane sunrises and sunsets. Greenland is magic. With extremely slow progress we finally broke free last night and are less then 10 miles from what will soon be base camp. The visual capture has been unreal, 8k footage and photos I can't wait to share! This may be the last post until mid August, satellite internet is tricky in the deep mountain valleys. Huge thank you to @dell for making this possible! Additional thank you to @reddigitalcinema @mountainhardwear @arcteryx @goalzero @alpinestartfoods for additional support on this epic adventure. Big shout out to the team here, my good friends @mikelibecki @ethan_pringle @andy_mann @connor_seybert for slugging this one out with laughter!

I want them all ❤️ #sledDogs 🇬🇱

Buzzing about #Greenland, officially touching down there in a couple hours to begin the next adventure! Here's a carousel of photos from 2012 to the south east fjords on my last expedition with @mikelibecki @ethan_pringle @angelajpayne @mountainhardwear / Can't wait for what's ahead!

▶️🔊This quick clip here is of my friend @ethan_pringle from a short film we made back in 2012 simply called "3 Days With Ethan Pringle" - Ethan is without a doubt among the most talented all around rock climbers on the planet not to mention a hilarious dude. He can pull down hard in every category, from hard trad ascents like the Cobra Crack (5.14b) in Squamish Canada, climbing north America's hardest sport route (jumbo love 5.15b) big wall first ascents in China, Greenland and Yemen, and bouldering v15, Ethan is a master. I've traveled all over the world with him and I'm so excited to be on route to Greenland for yet another adventure together with an all star team. We just landed in Iceland and the team psyche is high! Tomorrow we push on into greenland for our 40 day expedition of exploration, climbing and a lot of laughs - the unknown adventure awaits! All orchestrated and led by one of the most well traveled explorers and first ascentionists in the world today, @mikelibecki. Team Greenland 2017 / @ethan_pringle @mikelibecki @andy_mann

Good to be back in #Iceland, I wish it was longer than 24 hours! Unfortunately I won't be seeing views like this. I shot this back in 2015, almost 2 years ago to the day from a small plane with @chrisburkard & @volcanopilot . Converging braided rivers in the south east highlands, a product of glacial run off.

It's crazy how time flies, over a year and a half ago @mikelibecki was telling me about our next planned expedition- a 40 day climbing and exploration mission to south east #greenland. I just boarded my first flight, on route with @andy_mann and @connor_seybert to rendezvous with Mike and @ethan_pringle in Reykjavik Iceland. From here we'll join forces and head to beautiful Greenland as an A team! This photo here is from my last trip with Mike and Ethan to Greenland, taken right outside of our tents in base camp near the foot of the #gnarWall tower. Mike and Ethan climbed this beast on the trip, taking the proudest line right up the center of the 3,000+ beast in less then 48 hours nabbing the first ascent. Looking forward to what's sure to be a trip of a lifetime but as always, will miss my beautiful wife @danahrichardson, family, friends and life in Colorado. One thing is for certain, I'll be bringing home stories to share for years to come and am grateful for the experience! Big thank you @dell @mountainhardwear @reddigitalcinema @arcteryx @mountainsmith for the support and making this happen, more soon!

A couple years ago while on a climbing trip in the Verdon my friend @mattsegal told me about an idea he had to start a coffee company. Being no stranger to expeditions and bad coffee, Matt's idea was to found a brand that placed an emphasis on quality and taste. 3 years later it's exciting to see his and biz partner @ahanifin's dream come to fruition with @alpinestartfoods . I'm also honored to be a brand ambassador on the team! If you'd like to try it #AlpineStart is available at REI, Whole Foods, Amazon and other locations. I'm leaving tomorrow afternoon to #greenland for a 40 day climbing expedition, coffee is a big part of my morning and I'm psyched to be going light, fast and convenient with @alpinestartfoods ☕️

Happy 4th of July everyone! There are many places in the world dear to my heart, I love traveling and seeing the many incredible cultures, meeting new people and experiencing the beauty of our planet, but as they say, there's no place like home! Here in the US, today is a day we celebrate what we have and the sacrifices given by so many to have our freedom. I'm grateful for my life, where I live, and these sacrifices. 🙏🏻 🇺🇸🍻💥#independenceday

I love those summer mornings in the mountains, yesterdays alpine start with my dad @dougladzinski in @rockynps / @alpinestartfoods #rockymountainnationalpark

Great day in @rockynps on a photo safari with my dad @dougladzinski - we had some good sightings and a lot of laughs! I look forward to these moments with my dad and was happy to get one more in before heading out to Greenland for a 40 day expedition. Let's get back at it when I get home dad! #rockymountainnationalpark #coyote

▶️🔊As much as I love the mountains there is a special beauty you can only find in the desert. Living in colorado I feel like I get the best of both worlds. Here is 60 seconds of isolation, beginning in western Colorado in the #NorthernBasinDesert, rolling into the #MojaveDesert of southern Utah and ending in the #SonoranDesert of California. Hope you enjoy! 🌵☀️ @3stringsproductions

I love photographing birds in general, but owls to me are always extra special. There's something stoic about these voracious predators, they have a calm and collected air. The #GreatGreyOwl is a beast, also known as the #PhantomOfTheNorth, they're widely distributed across the eastern and western expanse of the Northern Hemisphere and incredible to see in flight. 🦉
