WORDS TO LIVE BY:

“Desire is the key to motivation, but it’s determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal – a commitment to excellence – that will enable you to attain the success you seek.”
– Mario Andretti


'There are only 3 real sports: bull-fighting, car racing and mountain climbing. All the others are mere games'
- Hemingway

'The greatest virtue that man learns from mountains is that he has not gone to the mountains to conquer them; rather, he has gone to the mountains to conquer himself.'
- Eric Trinka

"Hard men live hard."
The devil's sales pitch before I mortgaged my soul for a powder day.

'[I was] scared, but did it anyway.'
-One of the many great partner I've climbed with-I raise a shot of Jose Cuervo.

'Mental fortitude is more important than physical endurance.'
- Unknown

'Too tough to kill, too mean to die.'
-Bradish Family Motto

'The best climber in the world is the one who's having the most fun.'
-Alex Lowe

On Religion: "I would hope that God would rather have me in the mountains thinkin' about church, than in church thinkin' about the mountains." Climbing in the Tetons.

'I don't worry about the ratings too much. I figure there's only three basic categories for climbing: 5.easy, 5.fun, 5.hard. The rest is just numbers.'
-Brian Cox

'The rules of the game must be constantly updated to keep up with the expanding technology. Otherwise we overkill the classic climbs and delude ourselves into thinking we are better climbers than the pioneers.'
- Yvon Chouinard

'Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far they can go.'
- TS Eliot

'Fear... the right and necessary counterweights to that courage which urges men skyward, and protects them from self-destruction.'
- Heinrich Harrer

'In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.'
- John Muir

'When my legs begin to move, the thoughts begin to flow.'
- H.D. Thoreau

'There are many bold climbers, and there are many old climbers, but there are few bold old climbers'
-unknown? Fred Becky being the exception to this and many other proverbial spews.
