On today's Climbing Daily, we talk to Swedish paraclimber Aron Anderson about the challenges facing a mountaineer and adventurer, who also happens to be in a wheelchair. Aron ended up in a wheelchair at the age of nine after aggressive surgery to remove a tumour from his lower back. A former Paralympian, Aron became the first person in a wheelchair to climb Sweden's highest mountain, Kebnekaise, in 2013. We caught up with Aron while he was in Chamonix preparing to climb Mont Blanc. We look forward to hearing how he gets on.
