Global Explorers Mexican Volcano Climb Video

In November 2009, a group of blind and sighted students from the US and Mexico climbed the third highest mountain in Mexico—taller than anything in the Lower 48. Led by Erik Weihenmayer, the only blind person to climb Everest, the expedition was a tremendous success.

    I wish they would have had vidio discription for this. I also found that the music was a bit to load and at times it was difacult to here a couple of the people. My advice is to turn the sound of the music down so that it is possable to hear people and to add vidio discription.

    Just found blind today and i'm amazed to hear this post, because I was part of this expedition with Erik W. I lost my vision in combat operations in Iraq in 2008 and in 2009 on veterans day we stood on top of this volcano, something I will never forget. Check out Soldiers to the Summit, a climb in the Himalayas which involved 11 injured veterans. google soldiers to the summit
