On May 29, Adaptive Climbing expert, Craig DeMartino, his wife and son will be heading to Dnipro, Ukraine to lead an adaptive climbing clinic for disabled children. Children with disabilities in Ukraine are often sent to orphanages where they live, and in essence are forgotten by society. With Craig’s help we will bring a new sense of adventure and fulfillment into the lives of these young people. It will be an amazing experience to see these youth gain a new skill they can use the rest of their lives.

After surviving a 100 foot groundfall that resulted in a fused back and neck as well as the amputation of his right leg, Craig returned to climbing with a new perspective. He is the first amputee to climb El Capitan, in Yosemite National Park, in under a day, lead the first All Disabled Ascent of El Capitan, and has climbed El Cap four times since his accident in 2002. He is a two time National Adaptive Climbing Champion, and a two time Bronze Medal winner in the Adaptive World Championships. He travels, climbs and teaches adaptive climbing clinics all over the world.
