Man With Cerebral Palsy Reaches Summit of El Capitan

YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK, Calif. -- After pulling himself up with his hands 20,000 times in six days, Stephen Wampler finished the climb of his life Friday when he reached the summit of El Capitan in Yosemite National Park.
"It was six days of just absolute torture and I would say awe-inspiring too," Wampler said.
Awe-inspiring not only for Wampler but for disabled children worldwide. Wampler, born with cerebral palsy and usually wheelchair-bound, became the first person with his disability to reach the top of El Capitan.
