WALKING INTO HISTORY
A team of disabled adventurers are on a mission to be the first disabled team in history to complete the notorious Grand Slam. Very few adventurers have completed all stages of this impressive feat, which entails summiting the highest peak on each of the 7 continents and walking unsupported to the geographic North and South Poles. The Adaptive Grand Slam team will learn to climb using modified techniques and equipment in order to take on the world’s most challenging mountains. This evolving team is comprised of disabled adventurers, professional mountaineers and expedition leaders and supportive members of the extreme adventure community
Altius has partnered with the team to provide free physiotherapy services to the athletes as well as biomechanics assessment, insoles and brace fitting.
Our staff were also on hand during the weekend to assist the adventurers and will be at each training weekend leading up to the next big Summit attempt next year Mount Vinson, Antartica.
A good weekend was had by all!
