The balcony of Mt. Everest.
.
You’re at 27, 500ft above sea level and you’re climbing in the Death Zone. Your body is deteriorating faster than it can recover. Most are breathing supplemental oxygen at this altitude. It’s minus -20c, you can barely feel your toes and you’ve been waiting all night for the sun to rise, re-energize and warm up your extremities. This is that moment.
.
As the high altitude cameraman for the expedition, I’ve shot the entire route since departing from camp 4. My smaller DSLR is now a block of ice so I switch it out for the heavier 5D. It’s game time. This is where it counts. The moment you get up on the ridge, it feels as though the entire world is beneath you. Step by step. Breath by breath. You can almost reach out and touch the summit. For now, you relish in the absurdity of the views of the tallest mountains on Earth that are suddenly beneath you. You’re 1,535 feet away from the highest point on Earth.
.
Stay focused. Remain calm. Dig deep. And keep climbing.

  • This was the hardest hike I have yet to do. Started the summit at 4am to make it up before sunrise. Trekking up a mountain in the dark of night was unreal. All I could see was the black outline of the mountain, blindly walking in hopes of it to be worthy of the work. I had never been so close to the sky, it seemed like I could just reach up and grab the stars. A couple hours later I had made it to the top, and it was below freezing. I didn’t have enough layers on. The fog covered the view, and I didn’t know if I’d be able to see anything. Finally, the sun began to rise. I was hugged by light, awhile taken back by the wonder of the mountain. 10 miles before breakfast, and it was worth every step.
