Untethered: The Masterpiece Of Climbing A 2,500 Ft Rock Face With No Ropes

Man Climbing Up Rock Face Without Ropes

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did … So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” -Mark Twain

We, as humans, have a remarkable gift for exploration.  In our goals, ambitions, and dreams we are unique; yet we are all united in our innate desire to be more, to do more, to love more, to conquer more.

Through exploration and discovery, we are clearly able to witness the majesty of the world around us and capture it in our minds, even if only for an instant. We push the bounds of human existence, conquer those bounds, and push on. Unlike fish, unlike birds, unlike chimps, dogs, cats … we alone have the desire and ability to break new boundaries and test our own limits. It is through this we live.
