Climbing Team Helps Man With Muscular Dystrophy Climb El Capitan

“So many times, we let fear control our lives and I wasn’t going to let that happen.” -Shue Vang

Very cool story out of Yosemite National Park where a Washington state climbing team helped their friend, who has muscular dystrophy and uses a wheelchair, scale part of El Cap. The team of four climbers carried 30 year old high school teacher, Shue Vang, to the base of El Capitan on Sunday and used an electric rescue device to help pull him about 400 feet up the mountain.  The views were incredible and Shue, like the rest of us, can’t believe Honnold’s crazy ass did the entire thing with no ropes.
