Video: Meet Deaf Climber Andre Hedger

If you’re looking for a bit of inspiration today than look no further than this video. It features climber Andre Hedger, who first started rock climbing at the age of four, but then lost his hearing at a result of meningitis at the age of five.

Andre doesn’t let his lack of hearing serve as an impediment to his goals however, and as you’ll see in the video from EpicTV he is actually very active in helping to teach others both sign language and how to climb. Despite his busy lifestyle, he also finds time to continue his own training and tackle some challenging climbs of his own.
