Island Peak – Nepal 2013

A lot of training and gear selection went towards the preparation of a hopeful summit of Island Peak (Imja Tse) 20,305ft. With the biggest snowfall Nepal had experienced in almost a century, our dreams of climbing our first peak above 6000m vanished overnight. We were trekking towards Gokyo Lakes when the snow started to fall. At first the snow was light and made for great photos, but three hours later it was falling in sheets.
