One month ago: standing on the top of the world. It was a magical and terrifying moment. Magical to see the world from such a position. Terrifying to know we had a long way to go along a very exposed, cold ridge until we were safe. I learned so many things after spending 40 days in Tibet and 32 days on Everest/Chomolungma. We have deeper reserves than we think. You can cover a lot of ground with a pounding headache. Pressure breathing works. Showering doesn’t need to happen as often as you think. Ice in drinks is an amazing luxury. I am a more patient person. Being alive is a gift. Life is fragile.#climbforequality Thank you to my sponsors who allow me to live my #bigmountaindreams: @keen @fattire @patagonia @gaiaherbs @rylo @clifbar @julboeyewearna @lekiusa @movementskis @prethelmets @allgoodbrand
