Little person, big environment, @huens Sarah Hueniken working her way up the frozen wall behind Helmcken Falls, one of the most beautiful, volatile, and most insane places to ice climb!

Always an honor when one of your images lands on the cover of a magazine, especially when it’s the @adventurejournal For those of you who appreciate quality journalism, and a magazine in your hands to to read, as opposed to a digital screen, I recommend getting a subscription to the AJ! A quarterly publication that is sure to entertain anyone who loves the outdoors. And about this photo, thank you @tammyfaye for your hard work this day, rock climbing, a bit of paddle boarding and some adventure hiking and trail running. A great day in our backyard yard of the Sierra Nevada. I am also glad I brought that 300mm 2.8 to get this shot, that 6lb rock at the bottom of my bag proved to be useful! 😃

When the mountain speaks hopefully you are in a safe place to listen. An hour before this photo we were at the base of this cliff with some serious apprehension about going up. A loud rumble above sent us squirming in a little alcove of shelter as she came roaring down above and next to us. It was loud and clear to get the F****! out of there. We then skied across the valley and watched the mountain come alive and made plans to try it another day!

The ice from the Greenland Ice Cap pre dates the Romans, maybe it was these icebergs that inspired Roman architecture. These icebergs certainly inspired @realwillgadd and myself as this arch beautiful framed Will as he climbed this giant beauty last summer on Disko Bay. @redbulladventure @redbullillume #rbi19submission

So saddened about the news this week. The mountain community lost some truly amazing people! My heart goes out to their families and loved ones. I was fortunate to spend some time with @davidlama_official this winter, so incredibly humble and genuine! It’s not his ninja, mountain goat skills that resonate with me, it was his kind heart that impacted me the most.

Incredible honored to see this image of @lonniekkauk on the cover of @climbingmagazine taken in Yosemite Valley. I have had a subscription to Climbing Magazine since the early 90’s, it’s incredibly humbling to see your photo showcased like this amongst all the amazing images and photographers that have been such an inspiration to my climbing and photography!

Greenland was a wild adventure with @realwillgadd and one of the most beautiful and stunning landscapes I have ever witnessed. Seeing the glaciers meet the ocean as the icebergs drift away then camping on the ice cap and descending into the glacier. This image of Will climbing out from the depths of a moulin was a highlight and cumulation of the entire adventure. We had climbed on icebergs, froze our asses off in sub-zero temps, navigated safely inside a volatile glacier and now ice climbing in one of the wildest places on the planet. @redbulladventure @redbullillume #rbi19submission

@realwillgadd descending into the deep blue! Excited to share this Greenland project with Will Gadd and @jason_gulley_science as we spent time on the Greenland Ice Cap exploring a moulin which is a deep ice cavity in the glacier. Please click on the link in my profile for a behind the scenes video, story and more photos from this amazing trip! @redbull @redbulladventure @redbullillume #rbi19submission

@mammothmountain has received so much snow this year the mountain has transformed into one big surf sliding wave and the sets were definitely double over head for @bernierosow today! @blackcrows_skis
