From Jimmy Chin on Mt. Everest - After two months of fighting bitter cold, massive storms and an avalanche that swept most of the climbing route on the Lhotse face, Dave Hahn, Kit and Rob DesLauriers make a late post monsoon summit bid on Everest. This shot of the team climbing above the Balcony at over 27,000ft with Makalu (the fifth highest peak in the world) in the background was one of the few frames I got that morning due to a frozen shutter.

After skiing a few hundred feet from the summit, I caught up to Kit and Rob DesLauriers at the Hillary Step. We clipped into ropes to rappel down the forty-foot rock band at 28,840 feet, then skied across to the exposed ridge to the South Summit. Photograph by Jimmy Chin.
