Athlete Profile of World Champion Paraclimber Justin Salas

Justin Salas was diagnosed with optic neuropathy at the age of 14. Simply put, he’s blind.

After losing his vision, a friend introduced Justin to climbing--he quickly fell in love with the movement, challenge, and climbing lifestyle. As Justin improved at climbing he began entering adaptive climbing competitions. He's since won multiple gold medals at the USA Climbing Adaptive National championships and a World Cup Paraclimbing championship!

Recently, Justin became the first adaptive rock climber to achieve the grade of V11/8A. We are proud to have him as a PhysiVāntage climbing team member!
