4WheelBob’s ascent of White Mtn – VIDEO

Previously I Iinked to photos by Tom Mangan and myself from the historic ascent by 4WheelBob Coomber to the summit of 14,246ft (4342m) White Mountain in California by wheelchair.

This was the culmination of a 5-year dream of Bob’s, his third attempt.

But photos cannot convey the difficulty of this feat. You need to see video to understand just how slowly one can progress on loose scree, even one as well-trained and dogged as 4WheelBob.

Incidentally, 4WheelBob has added a blog to his website.
