No limits to disability rock climbing

When you think of rock climbing, you might have an image of climbers hanging from a precipice with their fingers, or balancing by their toes on a tiny ledge.

But what if you're a wheelchair user, or if you're missing an arm or a leg, or if you have cerebral palsy?

Scotland's first Paraclimb competition, at the Edinburgh International Climbing Arena near Ratho, proved there are few limits when it comes to rock climbing.
