One climb at a time!

By Keith, Klippel-Feil syndrome, Holoprosencephaly, pulmonary fibrosis, United States, February 28, 2019

Training at Vertical Adventures for the upcoming National Adaptive climbing competition.

I am an overcomer. I have multiple medical complexities that have not kept me down. Multiple doctors, teachers said there was things I would never do. And while there is somethings I struggle with I am living my best life. I am a paraclimber and have competed internationally and in US national competitions. I will not allow my issues to define me. I will define them.
