First amputee to summit Mt Kenya

Post by Neil »

I am privileged to be accompanying Nic Piadas and 2 other climbers (Taryn Van Olden and Justin Barlow) on an ascent of Mount Kenya this December.
He is a real inspiration to me and many other climbers, as he was born with only one arm. He plans to be the first amputee to climb this peak. If you interested to watch him climb Golgotha (Grade G1/19) in Kings Kloof with only one arm, watch this:
