TAKING IT FURTHER
Jimmy’s exploits in the mountains have allowed him to work with some of the greatest adventure athletes and explorers of his generation. Some of his most daring feats have earned him widespread acclaim and admiration. In 2006 he achieved the first successful American ski descent from the summit of Mount Everest with Kit and Rob DesLauriers. Five years later, Jimmy, Conrad Anker, and Renan Ozturk captured the coveted first ascent of the notorious Shark’s Fin, a granite wall on India’s Meru Central.
“Real courage is taking that first step and committing to chasing something that is meaningful to you.”
As an artist, Jimmy’s work documenting extraordinary expeditions and climbs has been featured in numerous publications globally and in 2019, Jimmy was awarded the National Geographic Photographer’s Photographer Award by his peers. Jimmy’s fearless pursuit of conveying extraordinary narratives culminated in the winning of an Oscar for the Best Documentary for ‘Free Solo’ in 2019 with his wife and business partner Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi. Together they have directed ‘Meru’, ‘The Rescue’ and their first scripted feature, ‘Nyad’.
