Kimber Cross, a native of Washington state, grew up learning to overcome her handicap of being born without a right hand and achieve success in life through her avid activities in sports and the outdoors. Kimber was a fast pitch pitcher for nine years, an avid fisher, and hiker. More recently she began pursuing mountaineering and her passion for climbing Washington’s tallest mountains. She is now part of the Mountaineers organization as well as the larger adaptive climbing community. Whether she is rock climbing or traveling on glaciers for the next summit, Kimber has modified and adapted her tools and technique for safety and success in her sports. She believes disabilities simply allow one to access different abilities and with a supportive community and a strong belief in oneself, we become unstoppable.
