natgeotravel 📽 by @renan_ozturk // The full spectrum of summertime conditions in the climbing hotspot of the East Creek Basin, Bugaboos Provincial Park, BC, Canada. On this particular day we had sun, classic afternoon thunderstorms and then a lighting show illuminating a cloud layer below the Milky Way. A sheet of green Northern Lights even floated through late in the night. This 4-axis motion control timelapse (which took most of a day to set up with @robfrostmedia@jimmy_chin@conrad_anker@alexhonnold) even caught some climbers starting to climb the majestic South Howser Tower by headlamp. As technology and the demand for virtual reality content rises everyday, I can’t help but dream of shooting scenes like in this and being able to look around in full 360°!

One thing among many that I’ve learned from Conrad on the expeditions I’ve done with him is that the greatest attribute a mountain climber can have is a bottomless well of childlike enthusiasm, just to be out in the thick of it. Whether it’s completing the Shark’s Fin of MERU or a relatively casual outing such as this one, he always brings this contagious energy to the table.
