Taken the morning of May…

Instagram Photo Caption: Taken the morning of May 1, 1999 as our team left Camp V on the North Ridge of #Everest to conduct and initial search of the upper north face. Little did we know that a few hours later @conrad_anker would discover the remains of George Mallory at 27,000 feet, and that we’d spend the better part of the day with a hero, a myth, and a legend. Still one of the most poignant moments for me on Everest ever. Thank you @conrad_anker, @onestepatatime59, @dharmabum333, @internationalmountainguides, Dave Hahn, Tap Richards, Jochen Hemmleb, and more.
