Paraplegic climber summits Kilimanjaro!
The details of Chris' final push to the top of the mountain remain a bit thin at the moment, but the most recent update to his blog shared the news, saying: "This just in... It's official ! ... Chris is the 1st paraplegic to summit Kili, unassisted! This is wonderful news and we are so very excited. Today is a very, good day! Congratulations to Chris Waddell & the One-Revolution team on a successful summit of Mount Kilimanjaro!!!!" A second update later in the day said that the team had returned to Kili's crater, where they were spending the night, and that there would be further updates today once they had descended the mountain and returned to their hotel.
For Chris, this is just another amazing accomplishment for a guy who hasn't let his disability stand in his way. He wanted to make the climb to inspire others, and I think it safe to say that he did just that. Congrats to him and his entire team.
