Team Everest 2003

The Summit Team members are among the best mountaineers in the world. Led by Gary Guller, the team will establish base camp at 17,500' and with the assistance of the high altitude Sherpa make the climb of Everest during April and May, 2003. If successful, Gary will be the first person with one arm to reach the summit of Mt. Everest.

Team Everest's ultimate objectives are to empower individuals with disabilities and to assure them the freedom to explore and to achieve their goals. The Summit Team will carry this message to the top of the world with your generous support.

Our focus today is on Gary:

Gary Guller

Gary Guller

Expedition Leader

Age: 36
Nationality: USA
Home Location: Austin, TX
Occupation: Mountaineer, Expedition Guide, Speaker

Gary was born in Britain, and grew up in the Southeastern United States. He has spent much of his life climbing and exploring the world, including countless trips to the Nepal Himalaya.

A 1986 climbing accident left Gary with a broken neck and the loss of the majority of his left arm. He was forced to come face to face with his own limitations, and after serious introspection, began climbing again. He has inspired others ever since to continue onward and upward.

In 1997, he attempted Lhotse, the 4th highest mountain in the world, and in 2001, Mt. Everest. He is very active in the community and is known throughout the world for his passion for exploring and promoting the potential of people with disabilities. Gary spends the majority of his time in Nepal; he and his wife Joni live in Austin, TX.

Gary believes that Team Everest ’03 has a powerful message; it models how society can open the door of opportunity to all people, regardless of their ability or disability. He has taken this message to the top of Texas and to the top of Africa.

Much more on this expedition in the next few days...
