This shot was taken by Jon Carolin while riding inbounds at Gulmarg, a ski area in Indian administered Kashmir.  The Rupal face of Nanga is the largest wall on Earth.  It is 16,000 vertical feet.

Skiing K2 video

     This is a video created by Luke Bream from the UK.  I was very flattered that he felt my project was cool enough that he wanted to create a short piece for it.  Luke runs a site called CrazyJourneys.com, it has got loads of info on people doing some pretty wild stuff.  Thanks Luke!

Mount Everest, North Ridge  

This is camp 2 on Everest's north ridge.  Our tent was pitched at 7,800 meters.  The tents in camp 2 are scattered from 7,500 m to 7,900 m along a broad ridge of broken rock.  This camp is notoriously windy and is a great place to test a tent.  The tent we used was this Black Diamond Guiding Light.  It is a 4 person shelter that weighs only 5 pounds.  On the night we stayed at this camp the winds were in excess of 70 mph and we were afraid the tent would be shredded.  It held strong and I went on to use this tent at the high camps on Broad Peak in 2008 and on K2 in 2009.  Changtze 7,500m is the mountain close-by and Cho-Oyu 8,200m is in the background.
