renan_ozturk Got back to the roots and climbed a sweaty lap on the Rostrum in @yosemitenps with old monkey friends the other day. Here @cedarwright makes the most of the wild hands-free rest on the burly 'alien' finish to the climb. -

Cedar is one of my oldest climbing buddies and the shared adventures include a team free ascent of Half Dome, an intense earthquake relief mission into the Kashmir Himalaya war zone, a dreamy first ascent in the Trango Towers and hilarious times both living/climbing out of his 1989 Toyota Camry permanently plagued by a rotten milk spill incident. #dirtbagdays -

renan_ozturk Places like Yosemite teach the art of discovery... they compell you to look up and down and all around. Great to be back in the Valley for a quick moment, remembering what this place has been teaching me for years. #roamwild #glacierpoint @thenorthface 4d
  •   lwr101 @judithlbrown wow!! Is that really him? 3d
  •   lightofdusk sweet!!! turned out amazing 🏿🏿 3d
  •   judithlbrown No @lwr101 this is half dome at Yosemite - he's never been there so obviously I wasn't told when Gus was born that he had an identical twin! Even same clothes! 3d
  •   saltydobbs @ejbozeman I thought this was your son 3d
  •   avishai_fishman This is my son - Oren Fishman. We woke up early in the morning to see the sunrise in Glacier Point. An amazing view we will not forget. Thank you @renan_ozturk for the excited photo! 3d
  •   judithlbrown Thank you @avishai_fishman for giving our family so much fun bc Oren's profile is identical to my son Gus - who was weirded out. Like same profile, hair, narrow camo pants and hooded sweatshirt. "Everyone has a twin." ( ; 2d

renan_ozturk The moment of truth...fear, excitement, commitment and all good things that go with the unknown. After ditching skiing and making the transition from the glacier to the rock @freddiewilkinson makes sense of the 5k wall above him on our attempt on the Wine Bottle with @alexhonnold #project #ruthgorge [@camp4collective @brainfarm @sanctityofspace film collection] 6d

renan_ozturk Dawi has to be one of the happiest humans on the planet. One of the last of his tribe of Himalayan jungle Pigmy, he only rises up to my waist. This day, on the hardest trails he also carried 3 times more weight than me. Afterward, Cory and I wandered over to his camp and slumped onto his freshly laid bamboo frond bed. Then I waited for my photojournalist @natgeo moment, trying to capture a prefect moment when nobody was paying attention to the camera. But alas Dawi was always locked eyes into the lens beaming with joy. @thenorthface #MyanmarClimb #happy 1w

renan_ozturk I don't know another soul like him. And it's not courage he uses to freesolo walls, like this 15 pitch 5.12 #senderoluminoso. It's self awareness that allows @alexhonnold to solo. He knows his capabilities, he pushes himself but not over the line. This trip to Mexico with @cedarwright @taylorfreesolo and @skysightrc took our breath away, as we watched our friend tick another one off his list of walls that inspire him. @thenorthface 1w

renan_ozturk One of the best lines of wisdom among the countless hours of @merufilm interviews was with @krakauernotwriting - thanks so much Jon for all the support with the story! ----------------------------------------------------------- "I think if you’re lucky in life, you have something that [you're] passionate about and good at, maybe. You gotta figure out who you are and what you are, and what you’re here to do. And that’s a lot harder than it sounds. You don’t get to pick what your passion is, it finds you. To not be true to yourself….is the worst of the bad choices." — Jon Krakauer / #MeruFilm #August14 / @conrad_anker @jimmy_chin @mochinyc @jxnfigs 2w

renan_ozturk I'm blown every time I go back to this place, mostly by how strange and vivid the colors are. Fun family jaunt taking Taylor's brother @jackrees20 out there for his first time. And @baloointhewild learned the hard way what the water tastes like. #saltflats #beautyintheunexpected @yeticycles [ @taylorfreesolo] 2w

renan_ozturk @conrad_anker is the definition of a hard man. And to be one takes unconditional amounts of joy and appreciation for the places and situations we get ourselves into, not just a high pain tolerance. MERU was certainly the biggest test of our determination, and may be the hardest of my life. Grateful to have this man as my mentor. -----------------------------------------------------------[photo @jimmy_chin @merufilm collection - taken just after getting down from 20+ days on the wall. Still can't believe the full doc is coming to theaters soon in the U.S.!] 2w

renan_ozturk Photo by @northernalpineguides // From the deep archives! My first trip to the great Ruth Gorge AK climbing El Cap sized walls in quite the different climate than sunny Yosemite. Learning the way of the sharp end, he hard way, riding our enthusiasm through the storm for hours on end and into the endless twilight of the 24 hour AK summer sun. We topped out in the fog, rime ice coating our beards. The sky parted for an instant to reveal Denali in rosy array. Things I remember. #alaska #thelearningcurve @sanctityofspace 2w

renan_ozturk @timkemple photo/words: "Way back when, @renan_ozturk and I carried our video cameras into the mountains in the lids of our packs. We called them 'beer cams' because they were about the size of a can of beer. If you look close Renan is getting the shot of Fitzroy... No drones, epics, dollies, or Movi required!! Those were the days weren't they?!" #patagonia #og #camp4pix 3w
