Maynard has set out to climb some of the highest mountains on Earth. He has already conquered Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa and Mount Aconcagua in South America. This, no doubt, is a daunting mission for anyone, but Maynard was born without a complete set of arms and legs. In order to overcome physical mountain climbing challenges, he called on Kahtoola and Flagstaff engineers to design and fit him with individualized crampons to help him summit and achieve extraordinary goals. In doing so, Maynard has inspired the world with the power of technology, creativity and the human spirit.
“When I was first asked how I was going to be able to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, my answer was, ‘I don’t know,’” said Maynard. “These are three of the most important words of my life. All discoveries happen from ‘I don’t know.’”
