What creates organic enthusiasm within you? That feeling/emotion that erupts an overwhelming force of ultra joy and psyche to be alive...that pure, sweet passion (why ration passion)...one of the most powerful I know of is friends+adventure+remote/wild/nature+big/granite/mountains+arctic magic+mystery (without mystery there is no adventure)...this photo/memory of immaculate joy came to be because of an immense synergy of such passions...the very first time I ever talked to @ladzinski was on the phone...we talked for at least an hour (like old friends that had never met, you know what I mean?) about an adventure to Greenland where we met in person for the first time (in Iceland enroute)...within days of meeting each other Keith Ladzinski was in the icy ocean with me doing what he does best: making some of the most beautiful images in the world (and always making those around him laugh/smile), his energy is top-notch...we are heading to Greenland again soon with the dream team/dear friends @andy_mann and @ethan_pringle with some big, steep goals, lots of laughter, blood/sweat/tears and intense emotion ahead...it's an honor and privilege to be with this crew...more to come...photo @ladzinski #joyineering #dellrugged . . . . .

#PeruJoy17! In between our humanitarian work/when school was out in the village of Pashpa, Peru, we of course went to play in the nearby Cordillera Blanca...this is my daughter @lilliana_libecki on our descent from the 18,134 ft summit of Mt. Ishinca...the best part was being up there with our family and friends... @andylibecki @mylee_francisco @clyde_cisco @kingmargaret @lilliana_libecki ...soon we were back at the school to finish the priority of our expedition: to do everything we could to bring joy and better the quality of lives here... Going to say it again: TEAM WORK! @dell @goalzero @humanoutreachproject @americanalpine @mountainhardwear @fiveten_official @clifbar @blackdiamond @msr_gear @thermarest @wigwamsocks #joyineering #dell

#PeruJoy17! This building did not exist a month ago...on the left is one of three new solar generators connected to nine large solar panels on the fresh roof. The ten new top-of-the-line computers are on new desks where my daughter @lilliana_libecki and local Peruvian girl sit. We painted the exterior blue and the interior white. New solar lights hang above. This school in Pashpa, Peru now has a computer center...very soon they will have reliable internet and the education/information potential will be life changing. In today's day and age we should all have access to education/information. We were also able to bring them roughly 1000 new pairs of @wigwamsocks socks and 500 pairs of new @fiveten_official shoes. I will say it again, TEAM WORK. Thanks to my daughter @lilliana_libecki for the inspiration and reminder that we should ask ourselves how we are giving back, locally or globally, let's make sure to ask ourselves that question daily...We collaborated with @dell @goalzero @humanoutreachproject to make it possible, with additional support from @mountainhardwear @clifbar @msr_gear @thermarest @americanalpine @blackdiamond @mylee_francisco @andylibecki @lilliana_libecki @clyde_cisco @kingmargaret #joyineering #dell

My daughter @lilliana_libecki embraces the beautiful Peruvian landscape and fresh mountain air at 12,200 feet elevation at our base camp for/near the humanitarian part our expedition in the village of Pashpa not far from the Ishinca Valley, Cordillera Blanca...magic, power, beauty and team work! More info and joy to come, stay tuned...reminder from my 14 year old daughter: "In a world where we can be and do anything, be kind and do good." - @lilliana_libecki And yet another reminder: everything all comes down to team work...huge respect and gratitude: @dell @goalzero @humanoutreachproject @mountainhardwear @clifbar @fiveten_official @msr_gear @thermarest @americanalpine @wigwamsocks @blackdiamond @mylee_francisco @andylibecki @lilliana_libecki @clyde_cisco @kingmargaret #joyineering

Remembering and reminiscing on this Memorial Day...my grandfather Harold served proudly...before that he found his way to Yosemite and raised our family near the Sierra Nevada...thinking about you Grandpa Harold, Grandma Bertha and Uncle Sheldon (all pictured here). Never forgotten and your energy is always with us truly...to all of those that served and passed before us, thank you, your energy lives on! @bellalibecki

From my daughter @lilliana_libecki Oh John Muir!!! Did you know today is the 125th anniversary of The Sierra Club? Do you know this skyline/view? I think you do, glorious Half Dome on an alpine start (4:45 a.m.) just before sunrise. I took this photo last week with my dad @mikelibecki as we embraced our Mother Earth's miraculousness once again in Yosemite. Do you know of John Muir, one of the most prominent conservationists/environmentalist/awesome humans ever to live? If not please start reading about him and his important messages/actions, which are more important than ever right now. He once looked upon this same view, one of the reasons he stood for the preservation of Yosemite and so many other places. And he founded The Sierra Club 125 years ago today! The Sierra Club is one of our most powerful teams of tens of thousands of people protecting our planet. Please read more about The Sierra Club and John Muir and get inspired to be the change you want to see! And if you have not seen this view from Glacier Point in person, make sure to put it on your list, just wow! Here's to the @sierraclub and 125 years of fighting for our planet! Thank you John Muir! #johnmuir #joyineering

Organic, it's a word/topic/way of life that is and should be one of our main focuses and absolute top priorities in every way...when did humans decide to combine real, natural foods with fake food? When did these fucking lame humans decide to start mixing/desecrating our food/water/planet with toxic chemicals? All for profit and power at the expense of what should be our absolute first priority: healthy, natural living for our Mother Earth and all her children...huge fucking sigh. Behold the beautiful small village of Hakahau in the Marquesas Islands...they only farm organically, drink water from the sky (no springs and it rains A LOT) and they catch fresh fish daily as they need it...the world can learn a lot from the Marquesas/Marquesan people here... This photo was taken high up in virgin Earth in one of the most beautiful places I have been honored/privileged to explore and embrace... And the massive rock towers here, WOW, stay tuned for more... #joyineering

Climbers! Public Service Announcement! The 'Cordelette' is now officially the 'Dad-elette' (or 'Mom-elette' too?) as I was recently informed on a grand adventure, by the super-quality-dude @cheynelempe, with the quote, "That is a sweet dad anchor..." Haha! Love it. Old dog new tricks? Can't wait for the next my friend...photo: Dad-elette sample a couple years ago... #joyineering #subzeroselfie #baffinisland

Who is getting stoked for big-wall joy this season? Sharing some psyche on the @fiveten_official page for the next week, click on over and check it and get fired-up with us...🙌 for getting way off the deck! #joyineering ahead! This photo: 'Kicking' this off with big-wall addict and vertical ninja Shinichi Sakamoto leaving our first portaledge camp (about 800 ft up) up to our high point after waiting out a week long storm, of course in his Guide Tennies, SO happy to see the sun and dry out...first ascent of the Weeping Wall, Baffin Island...note you can see the famous Mt. Asgard and several other reasons why Baffin Island is the raddest place for big, steep walls... Photo by @mikelibecki #brandofthebrave #fiveten
