Moses and Erik Weihenmayer

I am loving the opportunity to help others accomplish their goals and sometimes life dreams. This past weekend I was able to go climbing with Erik W and ba aprt of his journey to ascend the Primrose Dihedral on a desert tower near Moab called Moses.

Erik is blind and has worked very hard at everything to become the wonderful athlete and person that he is today. Enjoy some photos of our day together.

If you wonder how he climbs, it’s pretty simple. One climber climbs the pitch while bringing up two ropes. Then a climber climbs just above Erik and identifies holds (hand and foot) for Erik to use. Erik does the rest. Erik is on one rope and the other climber is on the other and they are both being belayed by the leader.
