Norbu, a Tibetan kitchen worker stands for a portrait at 21,000 ft., below a fierce wind plume blowing off the summit Everest. Every year, over a thousand people come to Everest to climb. And every year, the climb is made possible by countless seemingly nameless individuals like Norbu. The infrastructure of Himalayan climbing is built, in this case literally, on the backs of people like him. Standing with a bag of freshly chopped glacial ice over his shoulder, part of Norbu' s job is to collect ice to be melted for water. This is a trip he makes roughly 10 times a day for around six weeks. @adrianballinger and I are on Everest again this season, attempting without oxygen. People like Norbu make our climb possible... without them, there is no climb. Stay tuned for more images of the #unsungheroes here and at @esquire and follow our climb on Snapchat at EverestNoFilter. Shot on S8

I'm continually in awe of these sherpas. They have the most powerful souls, so much humility and heart. It's truly remarkable - love your captures and highlights of their lives, stories and effort. βœ¨πŸ’™
