The Blind Ascensionist
At 14, Justin Salas lost his vision but not his inner drive for adventure. This thrill seeker will take us on a journey of learning to navigate our world legally blind while pushing past any barrier or boulder in his way en route to becoming a World Champion Climber who continues to pursue a new challenge at every turn. Through Justin’s narration, viewers will be drawn into his mindset as he navigates through his physical, mental, and emotional barriers, only to find the strength to push past any “boulders” put in front of him. When Justin lost sight, climbing helped him build resilience and relationships as he found his place in the world as a blind young adult, and now he shows the world how he sees it.
