July 2017

Ten countries.

Twenty-five climbs.

One goal.


Climbing for ROMP exists to show the world that amputees are not disabled by a missing limb, but a missing prosthesis.

On July 29th, 2017, an expedition of ten elite athletes with disabilities along with able bodied athletes will attempt to summit the 4th highest peak in Ecuador: Antisana (18,714’) as a physical symbol of the power of mobility.

The team is made up of an incredible group of individuals including former Presidential candidate, Governor Martin O’Malley and Army veteran who lost his leg to a roadside bomb in Iraq, turned Elite Climber, Chad Jukes
