Sean O’Neil First to Climb Bridal Veil Falls
Sean O’Neil of Paradox Sports has raised the bar again. As a paraplegic climber he added another first to his resume last week by climbing Bridal Veil Falls (WI 5/6) in Telluride, Colorado. O’Neil is known for his climbs of El Cap and for pioneering lead climbing for individuals with spinal cord injury.
“It was sublime ice time with the tools,” O’Neill said in an interview with Rock and Ice. “That half-hour was very precious and magic the whole way.”
