Adaptive rock climber Craig deMartino

“THE JOURNALIST “… REVEALING AND INTERESTING "INTERVIEWS"

full_craig_6Craig deMartino was a professional rock climber who nearly lost his life in an accident 17 years ago, when he was dropped 30 metres from a rock ledge – breaking almost every bone in his body.  18 months later, he decided to amputate his right leg below the knee in order to be able to return to climbing. Craig has notched up a number of records – including becoming the first amputee ascent of Yosemite’s El Capitan in under 24 hours. But his focus now is very much on inspiring others with physical disabilities to get active again and to live with their trauma in a different way. He’s written a book about his journey called After the Fall, and is the subject of a recent short film called Craig’s Reaction.
