Ben’s injury occurred while repelling rock climbing. As a veteran climber for 12+ years, this accident came as quite a shock. Ben made a silly mistake of not tying a simple knot and ended up falling 35’ to his back, resulting in a T11/12 spinal cord injury.

“Nothing truly great is achieved with marginal effort.“

“This will allow me to get outside and ride in the wild and the wonderful places in the west! It will allow me to live a full, healthy, active life. Which I have dearly missed since my accident“
