Wow is right. I can't believe my eyes. That rock must have been 2-3 winters away from cracking off and falling when KentonB stood on it. :wft:

"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat." (Theodore Roosevelt)

Noah . . . seriously that shot in Patagonia is unreal.

I posted this in the "Dreaming of Winter" thread and Jim suggested I throw it over here. I took this photo looking down at my buddy also named Ryan (Dchild10) in February last year around 13k on Crestone Peak.

Took this photo of Kyle (letsgocu) on Denali about 19,500 feet on our first summit attempt before we turned around 200 feet short of the summit as we got caught in a really bad storm that wasn't supposed to arrive until much later. I have no idea what the temps were but all skin was covered and I had every piece of warm gear on.

Argentina. I never realized how photogenic that place is until I came back. Very dramatic place with the seracs behind constantly breaking off along with rockfall. Scary but oh so beautiful!
