Try to be happy
The adventures you shared
Will come back into focus, more
if you can return to the stillness
The stones, sunsets the dust.
The familiar that will be missing so much
Will still bring back memories; so comfort.

Adaptive = having a prosthetic I think
It could also refer to a person with limited function...

Not that I know anything about that

To answer your adaptive climber question Werner, in my case I contracted Paralytic Polio at nine months, deal with Post Polio Syndrome, wear braces on both legs and wrists, an AFO on my right foot and an ankle brace on the left. I mainly jumar on my ascents, but use climbing skills as well. Adaptive climbing is getting popular in many places in the world. What a wonderful thing this is!

I did my 20th El Cap ascent in '16, and 10 of those were in under a day, one was CTC in under 24 hours. The first of my IAD's was Bad Seed with Brian and Hans Florine, in Sept of '98. I am blessed to have so many really great friends. Brian still inspires me like he did when we climbed Bad Seed, he led those hard aid pitches like Bruce Lee.

I like that, do what you can with what you got.
An old friend had polio as a kid, had a bad leg with a brace and she became a skydiver.
