Kyle Maynard - an inspiration on the summit of Kilimanjaro and Aconcagua


The video of America’s Kyle Maynard who, despite his congenital amputation, climbed to the summit of Kilimanjaro and Aconcagua.

Simply inspirational. Little else needs adding. Kyle Maynard was born in 1986 with quadruple congenital amputation, i.e. completely without arms and legs. Nevertheless the American manages to overcome barriers which are apparently impossible. Such as climbing a mountain without prosthetics. In 2012 he required 10 days to ascend the 5895m of Mt. Kilimanjaro. the highest mountain in Africa, while in February 2016 he admired the South American continent from it’s highest vantage point, namely the 6962m summit of Aconcagua.
