    It’s World Kindness day! Yeah for being nice to your fellow humans and sentient beings. 
If there is one person that embodies kindness it is the @dalailama of Tibet. In this image he is ringing a bell with Swami Chidanand at the Buddha Park located at Sri Udasin Karshni in Mathura, Uttar Pradesh, India on 23 September 2019

    That climbers appreciate vertical terrain is an understatement. We live for it as it brings us joy and happiness. Living in Montana we have the opportunity to challenge gravity on our public lands. The @u.s.forestservice lands are an integral part of this natural playground. 
Hyalite Canyon offers reliable ice climbing year after year. This year, with several cold fronts and a saturated water table, condition are stellar. The ice is in a growth phase and it most plastic.  Doug Chabot (#notonsocialmedia) and I enjoyed two classic mixed climbs, The Thrill Is Gone and Black Magic. Doug works with the US Forest Service with the Avalanche Forecasting team. 
If you’ve read this far - thank you. If you live in the Missoula : Bitterroot Valley I’ll be presenting “National Forests - America’s Recreation Legacy” tonight 12 November 2019 on behalf of the National Museum of Forest Service History. The show starts at 7 PM at the University of Montana’s Center Theatre. Thanks to the fine folks @trailheadmontana the show is free and open to the public. 
Respect to the @americanalpine & @accessfund for keeping the dialogue open.

    @reelrock is in its 14th year of getting climbers stoked for their struggle with gravity. This year the film highlights @sheneenagins (Nina Williams) & @james_lucas highballing, @stevenjefferyclimbs & @boonespeed giving us the real story on Joe’s Valley bouldering and the humorous, yet serious, narrative on the speed record for the Nose on El Capitan with @bradgobright, @chimney_jim, @hansflorine @alexhonnold, and @tommycaldwell. Check it out. You’ll be glad you did.

One of the highlights is working with @thecliffslic for a day of clinics and meeting people.

I had the good fortune of climbing with @mcpearls a Deaf climber and her friend @erika_murray8  who translated my words to sign language. @nexpa15.3.331 (Patti Haskins) from Yosemite has been my connection to the Deaf community for the past 25 years. 
For my Deaf friends - we hear you and a “sign out” or “sign up” to all of you.

    The American Himalayan Foundation @himalayanfdn brings shelter, safety, education, health, and opportunity to people across the Himalaya. 
My life has been influenced by the people of the Himalaya. My first journey 1988 was about mountains. After being humbled by the paucity of air and cold temps, I was welcomed back to  hospitable climes by kind and generous people. For these moments I reflect with gratitude.

Join us on the 7th of November 2019 in San Francisco for the annual dinner as Matthieu Ricard shares his insight into altruism and happiness. Mr Richard is a French writer, photographer, translator and Buddhist monk who resides at Shechen Tennyi Dargyeling Monastery in Nepal. Matthieu Ricard grew up among the personalities and ideas of French intellectual circles. He received a Ph.D. degree in molecular genetics from the Pasteur Institute in 1972. The connection between cultures is a thought process that benefits all.

Please join us. Link in profile.

    @kaijonesski and his uncle @jeremyjones breaking camp at the 2019 @protectourwinters summit in Moab, Utah. 
In 2007 Jeremy Jones realized the effect that anthropogenic climate change was having on winters. Specifically, the snow that blankets the northern hemisphere where Jeremy plies his craft as a big mountain snowboarder. Rather than shrug his shoulders and drop in for another run, Jermey turned his motivation and creativity into a voice for winter. 
Thanks to data and science we understand how a changing climate is affecting human existence. The foundation of life - water, food and shelter will be affected by our existence. A hotter planet will disproportionately affect marginalized communities. The burden will be borne by future generations. 
Climate activism asks of its adherents to care about the future of our planet and species. Our generation, the first to be cognizant of climate change, has the opportunity to act and address critical change to ensure that the planet can support humanity for generations to come.

Humans are not perfect. Those of us who live in modernized cultures have evolved to consume tons of carbon. Our lifestyles leave a big footprint. Each of us can work towards a less energy intensive existence, which will help the CO2 conundrum. More significantly, we need to encourage governments to be proactive in addressing this challenge by reducing carbon centric energy and embracing sustainability. 
Live your life through the prism of future generations. How will our actions today affect their existence?

    @peter_b_croft coming in for the landing on “Infra Red”, Big Bend, Moab. Revisiting the route 25 years after the FA with Jay Smith. The bolts are still solid, the off hands are still off hands and I’m not quite as strong. Peter, on the other hand, never slows down.

Ancestral lands of the Zuni, Hopi,  Navajo, Ute and Paiute Tribes.

skied Lhotse post monsoon  last year. It’s an amazing ski run, one that will stand the test of time. 
Look for the film @thenorthface 
Hils and Jim will be presenting their story at @bozemanicefest on the 13th of December. 
See you there.

    Some times we wake up in the clouds. The overcast sky reflects our mood. You know the sun is shining, yet you just can’t find it. Then your friend reaches out and together you hike up above the clouds.  The sun illuminates your soul. 
Be a friend. If we all try we will be surrounded with love. Love is the foundation of happiness. And isn’t happiness the best?

    The @americanalpinejournal is the annual compendium of significant long climbs. Just as @theeconomist has a staid style of writing, the “AAJ” has its own understated way of reporting climbs around the world.

The balance between frothy spray and the humble brag is one the editor @dougald has spent years perfecting.  It’s the journal of record and we treat it with reverence. 
@davidlama_official and his climb of LunagRi opened this year’s book. His first sentence is the moment on 16 November 2016 that altered things. Thank you for giving me a second chance at life and the third chance to climb.

@hilareenelson & @jimwmorrison share the post monsoon climb and ski of Lhotse. Pretty darn smooth you two. 
@annegilbertchase and Chantel remind us mountains treat us all as equals. May we learn from gravity and in turn treat all as equals. 
@colinhaley1 builds on his years of Alaska experience and fuses it with Chamonix energy to reset the bar. 
@scott_coldiron shares his secret Cabinet of adventure. The connection to @jessroskelley makes it ever so more poignant.

@bretteharrington brings  community. Thanks. 
The book ships with “accidents” - the book of what went wrong. As much as we are motivated for the gnar, we are painfully reminded this game plays for keeps. With love for our late Alex Lowe. Twenty years today. We miss you
Be safe out there.

Say a prayer for those who left us too early. “Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.”
Poem by Dylan Thomas

    @thenorthface is launching #futurelight today. Check it out. 
@hilareenelson @jimwmorrison @alexhonnold @jimmychin 
#neverstopexploring
    We welcome the light each morning as it hints at what the future can be. We travel light as less encumbrance brings us closer to nature. When we allow ourselves to be humbled by the wild we have a deeper understanding of the human place in the universe.  If we find these moments with our friends we create lasting memories; bonds that sustain us through thick and thin.

@thenorthface is the brand I aspired to as a kid in the 70s. When  our friendship began in 1983 I was excited to see what the future would bring. It’s been a partnership built on trust and support. I am ever grateful. 
On the 1st of October #FUTURELIGHT, a sustainable approach to waterproof membrane, makes it debut. It is innovative. Stay tuned.

    How do mountains hear? With mountaineers. 😁 
While this dad joke might register on the corny end of humor, there is a real connection to the 21st century. If mountains need us to hear they also need us to speak. This is exactly what the global climate strike is setting out to do on the 20th of September 2019.  With motivation set in motion by @gretathunberg of Sweden children and children at heart will make their voices heard. 
The two image of Mt Everest, Lhotse and Nuptse in Nepal are taken from Pumori Camp 1. The first image, taken by Norman Dyenfurth in the late 1950s, when contrasted to a recent image offers a clear view of how the Khumbu glacier has shrunk over the past half century. The high angle ice on Nuptse and the West Shoulder is diminishing. The Khumbu Glacier has lost mass and volume as it is doesn’t have the snow input and is experiencing warmer weather. 
What are we striving for? @protectourwinters has a neat Venn diagram that lines out what we as a nation and global citizens need to address to make the goals set out in the Paris Accords. The Theory of Change addreses three areas: 1. technology (wind and solar) & financial instruments;  2. cultural change (the conversation we are having); 3. political will (level playing field for renewables). Together all these can help limit global warming to 2 degrees Celsius. No question it’s an ambitious goal. Yet we as humans can make this happen. We need to make it a priority. The future of humanity hinges on the next 40 years.
