Blind climber uses mental map to reach world champion status

A climbing area made of red rocks.

The International Climbers’ Festival was held in our region recently, and it offered an unusual clinic focused on mentally visualizing climbing routes, rather than depending on sight.

It featured a champion climber who happens to be legally blind. Wyoming Public Radio’s Hannah Habermann reports for the Mountain West News Bureau.
