Eleonora “Lola” Delnevo is an environmental consultant by trade and an outdoor sports enthusiast. A lifelong alpinist and mountaineer, everything changed after an ice-climbing accident in the winter of 2015 left her with a severed spinal cord and permanent, total paralysis of her legs. Lola channeled her grit – so useful during the most challenging climbs and mountaineering – to overcome the challenges of her new reality and build her second life. This approach has served her well: she has just climbed the Zodiac route on El Capitan – an accomplishment beyond most people’s imaginations. Join us on 8 December, when Lola tells us the story of her “two lives” and how she adapted to her changed abilities while redefining the boundaries of the accessible sports of climbing and kayaking.
