Video: Erik Weihenmayer Climbs The Naked Edge to Benefit Access Fund

Date: 12/7/2009

On Thursday November 5, blind climber Erik Weihenmayer tackled his hardest route to date – Eldorado Canyon’s The Naked Edge.

Led by Access Fund Executive Director, Brady Robinson, and accompanied by friend Charley Mace, the trio ascended seven pitches of sustained 5.11b followed by a film crew.

“Climbing The Naked Edge with Erik and Charley was one of the highlights of my entire climbing career,” says Robinson. “He didn’t just get up it, he climbed it. Every single move. It was an honor to share that experience with him.”
