    What a legacy. What an inspiration. These pictures spark the imagination of adventure and the sweaty palms of fear hah.

    I took your lecture and words in Siabod cafe as an awakening. Two days later, I bought flights to Chamonix for mid March 2014, my first Alpine epic.

    All the Best.
    Thanks again,

    Love your pictures of Jules. I met him in the Garwal attempting Meru (his second time.) We hit it off right away and although I only met him that time, i still think about him and his awesome character and obvious talent.
