Mankind has an innate desire to challenge nature. Man wants to conquer the highest peaks, swim across oceans and fly against the wind. People risk their lives to achieve certain feats and adventures give them a reason to live. Reaching the top of a mountain is a refreshingly thrilling experience in itself but also potentially fatal. But nothing can stand in the way of those who live for the mountains.
