An accomplished climber, Erik Weihenmayer became the only blind man in history to reach the summit of the world's highest peak – Mount Everest on May 25, 2001. Eventually Eric went on to climb all of the world’s seven summits.
"Visually, my team can easily differentiate each mountain," said Weihenmayer. "But my senses - the feel of the rock, the smell of the earth, the sound of the wind howling - are what make each mountain different and unique for me."
Eric is a tremendous athlete and has come to represent determination at its highest level.
