High Fives 1st ever adaptive rock climbing event took place Saturday, July 16th, 2016 with 10 #HighFivesAthletes!
The High Fives Foundation teamed up with the Tahoe Adaptive Competition Center and world class climber Mark Wellman of No Limits to teach 10 High Fives Athletes the joys of adaptive rock climbing. Having a blast ascending and descending the 24 foot mobile climbing wall multiple times, each participant discovered a new outlet in outdoor adaptive recreation.
“Being scared of heights nearly my entire life, I was definitely stepping out of my comfort zone on Saturday. At the end of the day I climbed routes that I definitely didn’t think I’d be able to get up. It was a true sense of accomplishment, and an amazing day with amazing people!” – #HighFivesAthlete Steve Wallace
