Stephen Wampler wants to become the first person with Cerebral Palsy to climb El Capitan in Yosemite National Park.
Wampler grew up in Lafayette.
The disorder has left him in a wheelchair for most of his life. He trained for a year to learn to climb using a system of ropes. Each pull brings him five inches closer to the top.
Wampler is hoping to raise $2 million for a camp he operates for kids with disabilities.
