A good day on Shepherds Crag getting some mileage in the arms. It was surprisingly quiet for a sunny bank holiday. Black Icicle (E1 5b) and Monolith Crack (HVS 5a) gave us a good warm up before Kieran led me up Battering Ram (E3 5c) and Black Sheep (E2 5b), the latter a line I've spent a lot of time looking at from the classic Little Chamonix.
A harrowing film from Discovery Channel on the tragic events on Everest this spring. My Everest Sirdar and a good friend Dorje Khatri was one of those killed. This year he was the Sirdar for Joby Ogwen who was attempting to base jump from the summit for a live Discovery broadcast. Huge thanks to everyone who went and got him and returned him to his family. Honored to have provided some of the images of Dorje for this feature.
