One-Armed Climber Is Conquering New Heights

MEET the one-armed rock climber taking her competition by storm. Born with no collarbone, shoulder blade or left arm, Sianagh Gallagher hasn’t let her disability hold her back. The 19-year-old, from York, is not only one of the youngest members in Great Britain’s Paraclimbing Team, she is also its captain. Scaling heights of 23m and travelling to Austria, Italy, France and Spain to compete, last year Sianagh won her first gold medal, coming number one overall in the British competition series. Sianagh, who first joined Team GB aged just 16, is the only paraclimber in Europe with one arm and has used her disability to prove doubters wrong.
