The idea of Vision 8000 may have been my own but there is no possible way it could come together that way. Every detail matters.

Every donation, piece of an energy bar, camp stove and crampon, getting between Base Camps the Tea Houses, from tents to toilets, backpacks and the gear that fills them ~ every detail matters and I am thankful beyond the highest of the Himalayas for your support.

MSR ~ Mountain Safety Research has provided me with a wide range of their world renowned adventure gear. Stoves to get the coffee just right at altitude, dishes for high class dining and tents to shelter when the luxuries of Base Camp are left behind. Keep an eye on their Summit Blog for surreal stories and tales from my trails where MSR gear is adding comfort and efficiency to Vision 8 000.

 Hyperlite Mountain Gear ~ Hyperlite Mountain Gear designs and manufactures premium, durable outdoor products including the range of ultralight backpacks I use for skiing, ice climbing and mountaineering.

Julbo ~ Protecting the eyesight I still have is essential. Thankfully, Julbo is taking care of my vision on and off the mountain.

LEKI ~ seeks to offer the ultimate, highest-performing products. Currently I proud to be using Leki’s trail running poles and ski mountaineering gloves.

Imagine Nepal ~ Helping with logistics and Base Camp services for all of my 14 climbs. Working with me to develop the blueprint for Vision 8000 and his belief in what is possible is, my admiration and gratitude for Mingma G. inspires.

Additionally, the Vision 8000 Core Crew who have never set foot in the Himalayas yet are with me every step. Tirelessly working behind the scenes to help me focus on my training and goals, no words can articulate me gratitude.
