Rock Climbing

Philippe Ribiere

Malarce-sur-la-Thines, France

Born with Rubinstein-Taby syndrome by a foster family, Philippe has been climbing since 1994. Despite mobility issues suffered since childhood, Philippe discovered that climbing could turn his disability into an asset. Soon after he was paving the road for himself and other para-climbers toward social integration and recognition. Philippe has dedicated 13 years of his life to push the international federations to create a para-climbing category in competitions. Go Philippe!
