As an athlete, explorer, speaker and activist, he has opened the eyes of people around the world to what's possible. In 2001, he became the first blind man to climb Mount Everest, the highest point on Earth. In 2005, he co-founded his nonprofit organization, No Barriers, to empower others to overcome adversity and achieve their biggest goals.This special edition of No Barriers introduces kids to the true story of Erik's most terrifying journey: solo kayaking the thunderous whitewater of the Grand Canyon.
