I had the pleasure of sharing two mountains with Marty, Cho Oyu and Ama Dablam. In 2009 as a first time guide on an 8000m peak he was incredibly generous with his advice and support. He summited just a couple of hours after our successful ascent.
In 2010 we shared our base camp with him on Ama Dablam and I spent many hours listening to his stories and thoughts on life. A truly unique individual who lived his life to the max.
