Editor's Note: This is an excerpt from Jeremy Jones' No Words For The Way Down, the book, now available in the TGR Shop.

"We stand on the shoulders of the legends who came before us. They move the needle forward— they unlock the secrets and the unknowns. A few in every generation sacrifice their lives in the pursuit of progression. To many it seems senseless, but that can be the price of adventure. Watching them fall can make us all wonder why we do it. Yet to not explore, to not evolve, to not seek out precious new ground would be a disservice to those who came before us, to those who showed us the way to the wild and raw places where life can be lived in its most pure and precious form."

Toni completed the 4,000 vertical foot course in just 6 minutes 29.2 seconds, reaching a top speed of 85 mph–on wooden skis. You don’t have repeat Toni Matt’s feat in order to

From NYC Desk Job to TGR Photographer, Meet Nic Alegre

I’m not gonna lie, when I was speaking with Nic Alegre about his career in action, environment, and lifestyle photography, I about cuffed him to the table, forcing him to hand me his life. Weird, maybe; warranted, yes. The dude travels the globe alongside elite athletes, photographing their almost annoying beautifulness. Rest assured, I held myself together. Alegre’s not chained up. Instead, he’s kicking it in New York, recouping after a whirlwind year, a large part of which he spent
