One-armed Everest climber debunks disabilities today at SCC

MOUNTAINEERING — Gary Guller, the first person with one arm to summit Mount Everest and the leader of the largest cross-disability group to reach the 17,500-foot base camp at Mount Everest Base Camp, brings his motivational story and message to Spokane Community College  on Monday (Oct. 17), 1 p.m.,  in the Lair-Student Center auditorium, Bldg. 6, 1810 N. Greene St.

The program is free and open to the public.

Guller, who lost his arm in a previous mountaineering accident, has continued breaking ground in outdoor adventures. He's led an expedition to the summit of world’s sixth highest mountain, Mount Cho Oyu, in Tibet and he's completed the Marathon des Sables, a six-day, 153-mile endurance race across the Sahara Desert.
