No Barriers’ annual mountain climb fundraiser in Colorado, What’s Your Everest, at Granby Ranch. The group will convene for an inspirational dinner on Friday evening, August 22nd, with No Barriers Ambassador Sean Swarner, and then rise early on Saturday morning for the climb. The site of the climb, Granby Ranch, is nestled in the Rocky Mountains and located just 20 miles from Winter Park, CO. It provides a beautiful setting to challenge yourself at the level that fits you. You will have the option to run, hike, or take a gondola ride up the 4.5 mile trail to the summit. Our keynote speaker, Sean Swarner, is an inspiration himself. Sean is the first cancer survivor to summit Mount Everest and went on to climb the highest peaks on all seven continents.
He is also the founder of The CancerClimber Association and author of the book “Keep Climbing: How I Beat Cancer and Reached the Top of the World.”

We begin with an intimate night of inspiration from, Sean Swarner. The program then shifts to Leadville, CO for three days of physical challenges. The team will tackle the high ropes course and rock climb at the historic Camp Hale, home of the 10th Mountain Division. The following day we will attempt to summit a nearby 13,000 ft peak. We wrap up with an exhilarating day of white water rafting.
Our days are filled with teamwork, challenge and adventures. The evenings are filled with terrific food, camaraderie and facilitated group conversations. Participants return home with a sense of accomplishment, a new “Rope Team”, and newfound inspiration!
