Quinn Brett is a pro-climber, accessibility advocate, public land and policy advocate and yoga instructor. Before her spinal cord injury, Quinn’s climbing exploits were proud physical accomplishments.

She and partners held speed records for El Cap, climbed 7 Yosemite big walls in 7 days, and made first ascents in Patagonia. After a 100’ fall during a speed attempt on the famed “Nose” of El Cap, Quinn finds a new context to what gives her joy and purpose. Hear of her road to recovery and the lessons learned about the paradox of paralysis and ability. FREE!
