The Gatherer – Maureen Beck

Author(s): Petzl Sport

The limitations that we set for ourselves often fall short of our true potential. How do we transcend limitations? How do we take these perceived ‘weaknesses’ and use them to achieve the things we want most in this world? Ask Mo Beck. A lifelong climber born without a lower left arm, she’s learned how to climb differently. Of all climbing disciplines, Mo fell in love with ice climbing because, “…it’s adaptive for everybody.” She now leads adaptive ice climbing clinics, teaching other folks to push past what they previously thought possible. ‘The Gatherer’ is a celebration of Mo’s desire to construct a world where, “…I hope in 15 years…there will be no such thing as accessibility anymore because everyone feels welcome in every space.”
