        • Cottonwood Lakes to Mt. Whitney

          Making route from Cottonwood Lakes to the summit of Mount Whitney--the highest point in the contiguous United States--was one of the toughest challenges in my life. My pack weighing in at 85 pounds--67lbs when exiting, I traveled and documented my journey using the following: Body: Canon 5D Mark II Lens: Canon 24mm f/1.4 L USM II Filter: 77mm Fader ND Mark II Batteries: 6 Canon LP-E6 + 18 AA Energizer Adv.-Lithium Memory: 5 Delkin 32GB CF X450 Tripod: Vangaurd Alta 264AO+ Track Head Mount: Manfrotto Mini Ball 494RC2 Special thanks to Dynamic Perception for the Stage Zero Dolly. I received my kit and 3 rechargeable batteries with only a day to spare before my trip. This was the first time I've used the dolly, and didn't have time to really practice with it, so more videos coming soon. Unfortunately the weather was too perfect---I.E. no clouds were available until the last day of my trip, so sorry if some of the time-lapses may seem rather empty. Along my journey I was accompanied by two friends of mine: Anthony & Bryson. We made this trip an awesome 5 day 4 night adventure from Sequoia National Park to Inyo National Forest. We camped at the following locations and altitudes before summiting Mt. Whitney(14,497ft - 14,505ft.): Night 1: Cottonwood Lakes(4 & 5) Alt.: 11,000 ft. Night 2: Lower Soldier Lake Alt.: 10,800 ft. Night 3: Lower Crabtree Meadow Alt.: 10,330 ft. Night 4: 2 hills above Guitar Lake Alt.: 12,050 ft. DISCLOSURE: Facebook http://facebook.com/sheldon.neill Twitter https://twitter.com/#!/SheldonNeill I rented the lens used for this trip from: www.LensRentals.com Dolly Kit from: www.DynamicPerception.com Music by: IWFYLS Title: Sleep http://soundcloud.com/iwfyls Along my journey to the summit of Mt. Whitney I was stopped by dozens of travelers asking what I had strapped to the side of my pack--the 6ft aluminum track from the dolly kit--and what I was doing with it. (I had some good laughs) Not one person knew its purpose or what it was, but hopefully Dynamic Perception plans on releasing a more compact version of the Stage Zero Dolly relatively soon.

            Эльбрус - бесценная гордость и достояние №1 в числе главных чудес России. Самая большая гора Европы! Одна из "великолепной семёрки" высочайших вершин, что держат небосвод на разных континентах планеты. Материал был снят во время небольшого путешествия на Кавказ и восхождения на Эльбрус с февраля по март 2011 года. Несмотря на тяжелые погодные условия, нам всё-таки удалось запечатлеть некоторые красивые фрагменты из жизни этой чудесной горы. Музыка: Green Sun - Himalayas Приятного просмотра! ------------------------------------------- Elbrus - is invaluable pride and property №1 among the main miracles of Russia. The greatest mountain of Europe! One of the seventh of most magnificent highest tops that hold a firmament on different continents of our planet. The material has been made during small travel to Caucasus and ascension to Elbrus from February till March, 2011. Despite heavy weather conditions, we still were able to embody some beautiful fragments of life of this wonderful mountain. Music: Green Sun - Himalayas Enjoy viewing! ------------------------------------------- В настоящее время готовится отчёт о зимнем восхождении на Эльбрус, особенностях проживания на Эльбрусе в зимнее время, а также об условиях съёмок видеоролика Mount Elbrus. Всю информацию в дальнейшем можно будет увидеть на моём сайте www.photosymphonies.ru До встречи на Эльбрусе, но только уже летом! Mount Elbrus 2011 http://www.vimeo.com/photosymphony/elbrus

                “This is our decision to live fast and die young. We've got the vision, now let's have some fun. Yeah it's overwhelming, but what else can we do? Get jobs in offices and wake up for the morning commute?” MGMT As we told our sponsors before the climb, we’ve gone rogue like Sarah Palin. We are off the grid… As we wake up battered and depleted, everything points us towards bailing. Only we are too hard headed to concede defeat, not realizing in fact that we are just too stupid to know when to call it. We haven’t had water in a day or so…but who needs hydration anyway? Talking with this degree of cottonmouth makes me sound like I am speaking in tongues…Renan looks at me with confused, puffy eyes. Are we really going up? I am as confused as him…the answer is a surprisingly emphatic ‘yes!’ I dodge rocks as Renan leads through some choss. He short fixes, I jug, dry heave, swing leads, dry heave more, and suck down hard candies like an addict locked in the throes of withdrawals. I can’t wait for the snow, for the water, but we still have hours to go before we get there…if we get there. But the unspoken common ground is that we are down to go up… As are artists, we are locked in a constant struggle between what we want to capture, and the energy our bodies can afford to give. It’s an instinct to reach for the camera, but one that nearly always falls second to the tasks at hand. Often times, I criticize myself for not shooting more…for not nailing the perfect image…but then again, I am fighting just to move. As athletes, we are succeeding, but as creative individuals, we are flailing…it hurts. There are multiple points in any given day, during any given hour, or on any given pitch, where I want more than anything to call it in. I want to yell up at Renan that I’ve had it. I can’t swallow, can’t talk…can barely breath, and all of it makes me want to descend. I know he feels the same because I can see it in his face. But our mouths stay shut, moving upwards steadily as a cohesive unit. No, it doesn’t make any sense…but we’ve never pretended to understand. Life is reduced to a consecutive series of familiar motions. Our arms begin to cramp due to lack of fluid. The glands in our mouths stop producing saliva. We are dried up… All the variables in the equation equal out towards descent. But math was never my strong point…apparently Renan suffers from the same learning disabilities. c & r

                  Dans le cadre du concours "Changer d'approche", proposé par "Mountain Wilderness" (http://www.mountainwilderness.fr/appels-a-participer/2990-tentez-ou-re-tentez-lexperiencen-changer-dapprochen.html), nous avons décidé Pierre-Do, Marc, Thibault et moi de nous rendre en utilisant les transports en commun jusqu'au Fayet, puis de débuter l'ascension du Mont Blanc (France) en partant à pied depuis le fond de la vallée. 40 heures plus tard, nous sommes 4300m plus haut sur le toit de l'Europe mais le vent ne nous permet pas de décoller, nous redescendons donc au dôme du Goûter, d'où nous décollons pour un vol inoubliable jusque l'attéro de Passy. Puis nous rentrons par le train jusque chez nous. Une sortie incroyable... La musique du vol est 'Keep The Streets Empty For Me' de Fever Ray.
