During a climbing trip to Turkey, on a routine day, pro climber Rannveig Aamodt made a small mistake that almost cost her her life.
A quick lapse of judgment resulted in a fifty foot fall. Straight down.
Emergency crews evacuated Rannveig by helicopter with fractures to her back, pelvis, both ankles and countless other injuries; both physically and emotionally.
Back in Colorado!! I love the challenge that comes with traveling and having to get used to all the different types of rock and styles of climbing. Where did the holds go? 😝 photo via @terjeaamodt . @lasportivana @prana @blackdiamond @wonderlandbeds @trailnuggets @frictionlabs @sendclimbing #climbing #fuledbytrailnuggets
According to the doctors, she would never properly walk again, and her future surely was not going to involve climbing.
Armed with hope, determination, and a beautiful perspective on life, Rannveig redirected the trajectory of her story.
She proved that her reaction to her situation dictated the course of her future.
