I hereby proudly claim what I suspect is the FTA (First Tebow Ascent) of Quandary Peak, and possibly the FTA of a 14,000-foot mountain in Colorado. I'd like to thank my mom for always encouraging me to chase my dreams, my hiking partners for sharing a (metaphorical) rope, and of course future career third-stringer Tim Tebow for the inspiration.

“There are two kinds of climbers: those who climb because their heart sings when they’re in the mountains, and all the rest.” - Alex Lowe
"There have been joys too great to describe in words, and there have been griefs upon which I cannot dare to dwell; and with those in mind I say, 'Climb if you will, but remember that courage and strength are nought without prudence, and that a momentary negligence may destroy the happiness of a lifetime. Do nothing in haste, look well to each step, and from the beginning think what may be the end.'" - Edward Whymper
