Davenport Skis Everest's Lhotse Face

Just saw this in a Facebook post from Kastle skis.  

 

Pretty amazing stuff and great pictures.  

 

Can't even imagine trying to ski at 21,000+ feet.

Makes me breath hard just thinking about it.  I'm nit sure I could even stand up at 21000'!

I'm unsuccessfully trying to find words to express the respect and admiration I have for these guys. It's superhuman.

Davenport is the real deal. While the weather didn't cooperate to fully film his ascent/descent of the Matterhorn, the bit that was in the film was unbelievable. And the photos/trip reports of his 14er project made me realize that there is a level of skiing that's beyond anything I'm familiar with. Unbelievable what these guys are capable of, and how much they've trained and acquired skills to be able to attain it.

If you've been hiking over 14k feet... then you can only imagine what 21k feet is like on your lungs.  Real deal indeed.

Man skiing at the top of Breck just about does me in I can't imagine another 9-10K feet.
