Nadia Climbs Again

Last week I wrote a piece called “Essays in Courage.” It was about a 16 year old girl with Cerebral Palsy who taught everybody at Adaptive Climbing held at Brooklyn Boulders a lesson in life with her courage.

Despite the confines that the universe throws at someone with Cerebral Palsy, last week Nadia climbed like a champ and didn’t give up until the blisters formed, burst and even bled. The link to that story is here below.

If that wasn’t tough enough, after me (I’m always early) Nadia was the first to roll into BKB ready to climb. Her dad and her brother, ever present, and ever supportive, she was quickly rigged up and ready to climb.

As these pictures show, she came, she climbed and she conquered. She put me in my place for being a ground floor climber as she looked at the wall three moves ahead and Nadia monstered the wall and topped it. Congrats kiddo you’re my hero.

I am a disabled woman who through no fault of my own has wheels under my ass. I rely on the decency and common sense of local, state and federal goverments, as well as the retail community to abide by the disabled access laws and provide adequate ramps, disabled toilets, and not use them as store rooms or broom closets. This blog exists to find the offenders and out them, inform them, and report them if necessary and shame them into doing the right thing when all else fails.
