Video: She Climbs With Half an Arm, What’s Your Excuse?

Here at The Adventure Blog our primary mission isn’t just to share news of interesting, unique, and massive adventures that are taking place around the globe, but to also inspire others to go out and pursue their own passion for the outdoors. That can come in many different forms and inspiration can be found just about anywhere. But this video takes it to an entirely new level, introducing us to para-climber Kaitlin Heatherly. You see, Kaitlin was born without the lower half of her left arm, which led her to believe that she wasn’t necessarily cut out to participate in sports. Then, she discovered she liked climbing and decided to enter into a national paraclimbing competition. Now, she’s on her way to the world championships and can hardly believe it herself.
