Here is my buddy George topping out the 2nd Step. The original ladder placed by the Chinese in 1975 was a bit short and required some sweet rock moves to top out. Top stepping the ladder, a big airy step out right onto a little edge, a mitten jam in a wide crack beside an overhanging boulder, backstep onto a good ledge then pull the lip. A short but fun boulder problem way off the deck. A new ladder was placed beside the old one and now bypasses those moves, allowing for more rapid progress.

Great night in Philly, hanging with Temples finest. #templeuniversity #templeparentweekend #fortunecookie #peakxv

This is a blurry image of my buddies climbing the second step. It was probably 5-5:30 am, the sun was coming up and I was trying to take pictures without the flash.

I'm back home from a family trip to a lovely place that had no cell or internet service. I should be able to begin posting somewhat regularly.
This is another image of Bill Yeo high on Everest's North Face. Bill climbed without supplemental oxygen to well over 8000 meters but began to cough up blood. He is very strong and reasonable and decided to use oxygen to rest for a while before descending solo. We trusted his ability to go down alone and I have great respect for him for knowing when to say when.

Little Rock, Arkansas started with a morning of interviews and visits with people at the Clinton Presidential Center, and then the evening migrated into a panel discussion at the Philander Smith College entitled, "Victory Over Violence: Overcoming Gangs In Little Rock"; a pretty powerful discussion about gang violence and how it is affecting the city and dividing people into factions.

Approaching the tallest place on Earth, summit of Everest. In the clouds, no view. Tremendous vibe. Sometimes things aren't the way you thought they'd be.

The North Col and camp 1 are located on top of this wall. Mellow climbing, good skiing.

Advanced Base Camp on the North side of Everest. The summit is visible from camp which helps to keep morale high. It was so cool to look up there and see the plume coming off the top.

Everest North Ridge 2004. The team had made an agreement to use the fixed ropes. Even though the terrain was easy we still had to use them to prevent any slips from turning into falls. This was good practice. A couple years later I had a partner that was "too cool" to use fixed ropes and he fell a long way. We rescued him and his trip was over. His life was nearly over too.

The North Ridge snow ramp stops at 7500 meters. Camp 2 is located in the rocks above the snow ramp 7600-7800 meters. The route thens traverses to a couloir leading up to highcamp on the rock slabs of the North Face at 8300 meters.
