Trusting Your Pack - Higher Unplugged Episode 4

Next Up

Jeremy Jones trusts his life to the contents of his backpack. On a recent trip to Alaska, he spent each day ascending mountains with over thirty pounds on his back. Avalanche gear, climbing equipment, cameras, food, and water are just some of the items contributing to this load. Yet as Jeremy reveals in this episode of “Higher Unplugged,” each item is essential—as it may save his life or those of his travel partners.Higher Unplugged takes you behind the scenes of Jeremy Jones’ two-year snowboarding film, Higher. Jones has gathered friends old and new to pass the torch to the next generation of big mountain rippers. His crew for the film includes Bryan Iguchi, Luca Pandolfi, Lucas Merli, Ryland Bell, and others. With these friends, Jeremy leaves tracks on signature lines in the close-to-home playgrounds he's made his own around Jackson Hole and Lake Tahoe. He also makes history with far-flung first descents in the Eastern Alaska Range and the Himalaya of Nepal, where the stakes are as high as the peaks themselves.For the film trailer check out the Higher film page hereFor more episodes of Higher UnpluggedDrop in with TGR!FacebookInstagramYouTubeTwitter#jjoneshigherCheck out the first two chapters of the trilogy:DEEPER: http://bit.ly/17hpujmFURTHER: http://bit.ly/1gJB1vH
