1 review •Follow Share
Gary Guller is both a world-renowned, record-setting mountaineer and a professional motivational and inspirational speaker, trusted by the world’s most respected organizations and corporations. In 2003, Gary was leader of the largest ever cross-disability group to reach Mt Everest Base Camp, at 17,500 feet. After setting this record, he went on to scale the peak, reaching the summit on May 23, 2003, and becoming the first person with one arm to summit Mt. Everest. Later the next year, Gary led an expedition to the summit of the world’s sixth highest mountain, Mt. Cho Oyu, located in Tibet. In April 2010, Gary completed the grueling Marathon des Sables in Morocco. The MdS is a 6 day, 153 plus miles (250km) endurance race across the Sahara Desert. Gary has gone on to become a trusted keynote speaker and personal executive coach.
Just as he discovered his passion for alpine climbing, Gary lost the use of his arm in a mountaineering accident. He stunned a medical team at Duke University by asking to have his paralyzed arm amputated, and, after serious introspection, he began climbing again, surmounting the barriers that stood in the way of his dreams. Gary has travelled and climbed all over the world, including numerous trips to Asia.
