    By the way, I got to spend a little time in the Andes last may, and I thought they made the Rockies look like kid's stuff!

    K2 under moonlight. The toughest climb in the world, historically. 1:4 death:climber ratio on this peak ! :yikes:

    It remains unclimbed in the winter.

    Nice!
    Did you take these pictures in your travels?

    I spent a little while living in Nepal about 20 years ago.... these pictures make the think of my time there!

    That's cool that you lived there.

    But alas, these are not mine- they are my pinings for personal and spiritual involvement (and dreams of climbing) of mountainous regions, and I just wanted to share these feelings through imagery.

    Nothing as epic or extreme, but I love climbing too. The Palisades in the Sierra Nevada.

    The knife edge of Matthes Crest. It was a fun traverse.

    These days, I spend more time surfing, stand up paddle boarding, snorkeling and playing with dolphins and whales.
