This Is What It Looks Like to Summit Mount Everest Alone
Brian Dickinson successfully climbed Mount Everest by himself back in 2011 after his guide fell ill mid-trip. Earlier this week, Twitter announced a brand new way to view content under one topic: Moments. What do these two things have in common? All of the stunning photography Dickinson has been sharing on Twitter is now available in one easy-to-access spot (perfect for a mid-day break!), despite being posted at different times.

Climbing Everest is no simple occasion—as you can tell from Dickinson's photos. The weather can change at the drop of a hat and the varying air pressures can be a huge issue if you're not properly trained. Considering Dickinson reached the summit on his own is incredible. Below, you can check out a few of his photos from the mostly solo climb to the summit. To check out the full Twitter Moment, head this way.
