Gary Guller Expedition
Home Location: Austin, TX
with one arm, will attempt to Summit Everest in Spring 2003. He will
lead a group of people with disabilities to the base camp of Mt.
Everest before himself attempting the summit. This expedition alone
speaks of his integrity, perseverance and his ability to motivate and
inspire those around him to accomplish their dreams and to reach their
others to look further into themselves, motivating them to set goals to
maximize their potential, placing fear and doubts aside and pushing through
the barriers to success in business and in life. Gary leaves everyone
knowing that anything is indeed possible.
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.
