Mesa Arts Center: National Geographic Live – Improbable Ascent
Paraclimber Maureen Beck learned how to rock climb one-handed through trial and error— one of her early adaptive climbing innovations involved taping a metal ladle to her arm.
It wasn’t long before she was tackling some of the hardest climbs by a one-handed athlete, securing two world championships in the process. With her trademark humor and wit, this 2019 National Geographic Adventurer of the Year will chronicle her journey as one of the foremost leaders in the sport of paraclimbing.
