Erik Weihenmayer, veterans and overcoming adversity

Nov. 11th 2010

It’s Veteran’s Day, and we just got this video from Erik Weihenmayer, who recently signed on as a team member on SCARPA’s athlete roster.

You probably know the name; Erik’s most widely known as the blind climber who summited Mt. Everest a number of years back. But Erik’s (as you might expect) much more than just the blind climber who succeeded on Everest. Beyond having tackled and succeeded on climbing objectives ranging from the Nose in Yosemite to Denali to the Naked Edge in Eldo (all those being objectives that just about any climber would be challenged on), Erik’s also passionate about helping other people who face adversities in their life overcome them.
