  • Justin Salas

    At 14 years old, Justin Salas was diagnosed with optic neuropathy of unknown origin. Simply put, he’s blind. Life without vision hasn’t slowed down this blind ascensionist—Justin is a Midwest rock climber from Oklahoma who specializes in bouldering. When J, as his friends call him, is not climbing you will find him with a camera in his hand, capturing the world through a new perspective.

    Justin’s climbing resume includes gold medal wins in 4 consecutive USA Climbing Paraclimbing National championships, and bringing back to the United States a silver medal in his first International Federation of Sport Climbing Paraclimbing World Cup in Edinburgh Scotland, 2017.

    In 2018 he also became the first paraclimber to achieve the grade of V11/8a.

    In September 2018 he took home the gold at his first World Championship competition in Innsbruck, Austria.

    Later in 2019 justin would take home the silver medal in his second paraclimbing world championship, while fighting off bronchitis.

    "After losing my sight I was unsure of what direction to go in life, rock climbing has helped give me direction and ultimately shaped me into the man I am today. In a way rock climbing saved my life." -Jsal
