jimmy_chin The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion. – Camus

In the end, it wasn't the climbing or the flying, it was the life you defined and the uncompromising conviction with which you lived it that we watched in awe and admiration. If we could only be so brave....Thank you for showing us what was possible. #deanpotter #grahamhunt #thisonesforthetribe #wildandfree #gratitude #respect

jimmy_chin Another frame from one of my winter aerial recon missions w @lannyjohnsonphotograhy scouting ski conditions in the Tetons. The only clear shot I had of the Tetons was through a window on the other side of the pilot so this is what I got.... On assignment for @natgeo. 2w

jimmy_chin Rise and shine. This is one of the benefits of getting up before sunrise for early morning runs… I travel a ton and it’s not always easy to train on the road. Having said that, I have accepted the #MilkLifeChallenge and will be out running or getting after it for a few hours every day for the next 30 days. Here’s to living the best and healthiest life you can #MilkLife @MilkLife #milkad 2w

jimmy_chin Another earthquake rocked Nepal last night complicating an already difficult road to recovery. If you haven't contributed yet, please consider donating to the Global Giving link in my profile. @globalgiving is supporting several important organizations I trust and have worked with in the past - Dzi Foundation, ALCF and the American Himalayan Foundation. Their work in the more remote mountainous regions are critical right now. A little can go a long ways for our friends in Nepal. Thanks for considering.... Best, Jimmy #karmicwork 2w

jimmy_chin I often joke that shooting sunsets is cheating...but some sunsets you have to share.... Lucky to get this one during an aerial recon this winter checking out ski conditions in the Tetons. Thanks for the lift @lannyjohnsonphotography! Shot on assignment for @natgeo. #heavenandearth @revosunglasses @thephotosociety 2w

jimmy_chin Some days you talk, catch up and joke while you climb. Some days you bury your face in your jacket, suffer quietly and focus on (as @stevehouse10 likes to say) letting weakness leave your body. @kitdski and @m_synnott enjoying some quiet time.

jimmy_chin It’s been nearly two weeks since the earthquake in Nepal and stories of the devastation to the remote mountain regions are only just starting to pour in. Please join me and dozens of other athletes, guides, writers and photographers who have been moved and inspired by the people of Nepal in raising $100,000 to help these remote mountain areas rebuild. I have been asked by a lot of people over the last couple weeks about how to contribute to the earthquake victims. This is your chance. We are working with Global Giving and specifically with several established and trustworthy organizations on the ground including the Alex Lowe Charitable Foundation, the Dzi Foundation and the American Himalayan Foundation. Please check out the link in my profile to donate. Thanks for considering.... 3w

jimmy_chin Thinking of our friends in Nepal.... I have been asked by a lot of people over the last few days about how to contribute to the earthquake victims in Nepal. There are some great organizations to donate to in order to help. If you’ve found one you felt good about and have already donated, great. If not, please consider donating to @globalgiving. Link is in my profile. Global Giving is providing emergency supplies including food, water and shelter to victims through some larger rescue/relief orgs, as well as long-term rebuilding support through a network of local Nepalese nonprofits and international aid organizations including many organizations I trust and have worked with before - American Himalayan Foundation, Dzi Foundation and the Alex Lowe Charitable Foundation. 4w

Launching the new Passing Time video series w @natgeoadventure today. Check the link in my profile to see the first episode w @deanpotter. Legendary climber and high liner @deanpotter has set up and walked some of the most iconic high lines in and around Yosemite National Park. After years of searching, he found a high line walk like no other. Working with climber and photographer @mikeylikesrocks, who perched his camera and 800mm lens over half a mile away, Potter pulls off the most cosmic slack line shot ever. #notphotoshopped #passingtime @itinerantmedia
