Throwback to my first major cliff drop somewhere in 2012.
On my first attempt I lost track of the cliff I wanted to hit and tomahawked down the set of 3 cliffs on the left side of this picture. Second attempted I was super stoked, knew exactly where to go and went with my core believe: 'speed is key'. Sent, land and then had the obligatory drinks at aprΓ©s! What a day was that!

Throwback to when I skied this little bastard somewhere earlier this year. Obviously this was with the one and only @johnthornton_photography #hahaclub

It wasn't pretty but we linked turns! And rested! This was from the 6150m summit we did while acclimatizing.

The team has safely returned to the valley from our expedition to Lenin Peak. We unfortunately had to turn around on our summit day and she didn't give us a second opportunity. However we managed to ski from a nearby summit Rahzdelnaya (6150m). #blackcrows #patagonia #ospreyeurope

As always we are bringing skis and are planning to ski from the summit!

My mind is somewhere high and remote, but in reality it's in a flat and a populated place. #ospreyeurope #patagonia
