I posted a photo a couple days back of the summit section of Everest's Northeast Ridge, in the clouds. Here is the same photo taken 2 years later with "the view"

Chomolungma

Peak XV distillate is over 900mg of pure THC goodness.

The highest established campground on Earth. North Face of Everest. When I think of this place, I remember surreal views (looking down onto the tops of clouds as they flash with lightning) and tents pitched on a steep rock slab so when you lay down you slide to the bottom of the tent in a crumpled mess 😆. #Quomolangma

"A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away" is how I feel when I see these old photos. This photo was taken by super sherpa Dawa Nuru of Thame. We carried a load of hardware and rope across the East Rongbuk Glacier to the Raiphu La, the pass at the bottom of the Northeast Ridge, that leads down to the Kangshung Glacier. At the La we were able to get our first glimpse of Fantasy Ridge, the objective of the expedition. The route was in terrible shape due to a very dry winter. So bad that as soon as we saw it we knew it was not possible. The view from the La was incredible. Makalu seemed so close you could touch it and the Kangshung Face and valley were very impressive. We snapped some shots and talked about a Plan B for the expedition, then shouldered the heavy packs and traversed back to ABC. Here you can see Makalu on the left and on the right is the wall that makes up the terminus of Fantasy Ridge.

Dry conditions on the wind hammered North Face of Everest, many years ago.

Looking down the North Ridge to Everest's North Peak, Changtze.

Here is another Everest photo from a decade ago. Things probably still look the same. As you are climbing up the North Ridge, the North Face is in front of you, 10,000 vertical feet of rock and ice. As you look out to the right across the North Face this is the view. Pumori in the middle and Cho Oyu in the top right. 👌🏽

Staying for a few days in Mussorie, India (a small out of the way Himalayan mountain town) and discovered that it was the home of Sir George Everest.
Sir George Everest led the way in his field, mapping out most of India and the Himalayas including their elevations. For this honour, despite objections, he had the highest mountain in the world named after him. He paved the way for all future mountaineering pioneers and adventurers in this region, AND... HE WAS WELSH! Britain was at the forefront of the early and most daring exploration and mountaineering expeditions. To name a few, North Wales (my 2nd home) on its own was the base/training grounds for early British expeditions to Everest including the first successful ascent in 1953 and also the spiritual home of greats such as Don Whillans and Joe Brown who, amongst others, completed the first ascents of Torres del Paine and Kanchenjunga respectively (completed after the first ascent of Everest I might add because of the severity of the routes). I'm far from nationalistic but it does make me proud to be a brit and feel so much admiration for my countrymen.
We made the short 3 hour trek to Sir George Everest's former home, now derelict and in disrepair (yes the graffiti does say 'Fuck me Neymar' 😅). Bit of a shame to see such a historic place in such a way, but what a nice interesting pilgrimage to make shortly before our own attempt at Everest with Lauren and my dad (attempt at basecamp that is!). #higgisamadventures #GeorgeEverest #Everest #peakXV #pioneer #Himalayas #fuckmeneymar #GreatBrits #JoeBrown #DonWhillans #mountainhistory #adventurers

Climbers approaching the deathzone on Everest. The spring climbing season has started in the Himalaya. Many people are now arriving in base camp and will climb up and down to let their bodies adjust to the altitude. Summit attempts will begin in early May.

The North Ridge of Everest on the left. The massive North Face on the right. It is hard to comprehend how gigantic this wall is. 10,000 vertical feet, a rock wall 2 miles tall. An amazing sight.
