NV-SAS68.Climber Brent Kuemmerle, who lost his right leg in a car accident in 1995, climbs up a rock wall just north of South Lake Tahoe, NV, Monday evening May 12, 2003.  Kuemmerle, 32 years-old, has been climbing since 1992 when he worked as a cave guide in South Dakota. A 1997 car accident left him without his right leg below the knee. Undaunted, Kuemmerle used the settlement money to buy a volkswagan van and at the end of 1995, set off around the country living out of his van and climbing for the next 3 years.
