3 Sisters on 7 Summits

Rolwaling, Northeast Nepal. Rolwaling is a rural valley village surrounded by mountains in Northeast Nepal. It sits at an elevation of 4,200m (13,779ft) and is surrounded by steep cliffs that are both stunning and brutal. These geographic features help to shape the people that live there, and may have contributed to its legacy status in the mountaineering community. This small farming community of Rolwaling is home to 15 Certified IFMGA guides and 60 Everest summiteers - a high count even among Sherpa communities in Nepal.  Rinzin Doma Sherpa (mom) & Jangmu in the background Even among Rolwaling families, there is one set of siblings that stands out in terms of their accomplishments, their ambition, and their love of their community....

K2 Winter Summit 2021!! The First Winter Summit Of The 'Savage Mountain'.

K2 WAS THE LAST OF THE 8,000M PEAKS TO SEE A WINTER ASCENT. Why? K2 is the 2nd tallest (after Everest) and the 2nd deadliest (after Annapurna). In the best of times, K2 is steep and technical with dramatic exposure. It is the host of extreme and hard to predict weather - think temps of negative 65 degrees Fahrenheit, plus hurricane level wind, whiteouts, rockfall, and avalanches.
