On February 12, 2009, blind climber Erik Weihenmayer scaled frozen Bridal Veil Falls near Telluride, Colorado, which Trust for Public Land (TPL) recently helped to reopen for climbing. Also on the climb was Chad Jukes, and Iraq war veteran who lost a leg to an explosive device. It was the blind athlete’s second climb celebrating TPL’s efforts to protect recreational access in Colorado and nationwide. For more information visit: tpl.org.
