After skiing a few hundred feet from the summit, I caught up to Kit and Rob DesLauriers at the Hillary Step. We clipped into ropes to rappel down the forty-foot rock band at 28,840 feet, then skied across to the exposed ridge to the South Summit. Photograph by Jimmy Chin.

After a month in the mountains, we eventually skied the first descent of 20,000ft Reddommaine Peak in the Minya Konka Range. #unforgettable #exploration #taoofkasha
