renan_ozturk Funny to think that this amount of gear will be pared down more and more, as we travel from the sea, through the country, and up to the highest peak in SE Asia. It all begins here - packing the gear for our upcoming @natgeo @thenorthface @camp4collective #MyanmarClimb expedition, leaving next week with @coryrichards @hilareeoneill @emilyaharrington @taylorfreesolo #MarkJenkins. Lots of specialized kits for this adventure including a CF #RED Dragon, SSD storage for high altitudes from @SanDisk, fresh offerings from @Fstopgear, custom solar setup from @goalzero, Thuraya IP sat modem from @satellitephonestore, a new @liteprogear crane design, a new @syrp_ slider, @kesslercrane second shooter #motioncontrol, @gopro toys, #Movi magic from @freeflysystems, #atomos #shogun 4k recorder for the @sony #A7s, and critical spare parts from @sherpascinema. Ropes from @bluewaterropes, axes and hardware from @blackdiamondequipment, glasses from @smithoptics, mountain boots from @lasportivana. #herewegoagain #staytuned] 5d

renan_ozturk Climbing into the past. A @kephoto photo of me from our @natgeo @thenorthface adventure exploring the ancient cliff cave cities of Mustang on the Tibetan platueau. [To quickly acces the cliff cave cities, sometimes the best way is to employ 'kamikaze free climbing' to get the rope fixed for the rest of the archeogistts and experts. The cobble rocks I removed with my hands, creating little mud pocket hand/foot holds, but anything could crumble at any moment. #chossineering #indianajones] 3w

renan_ozturk Original art by Chamonix climber Andy Parkin. Lost in the rain this week I stumbled across his studio and got a chance to reconnect with him. Few artist/climbers walk the walk for as long and true as Andy. As he puts it: "My life is, as the French say, in déséquilibre, unsteady and on the edge. It's not a bad thing, it's
more of a state of insatiable curiosity for the unknown. It's what keeps me going." [Andy also created the trophies for the #UTMB race, a beautiful collection of over 20 original sculptures. @thenorthface @camp4collective #localhero #forgedforlife #camp4pix]
