An inspiring video has emerged of a 34-year-old woman with spastic cerebral palsy climbing a rock-climbing wall.

The footage, shot on July 26 in Colorado Spring, shows the woman climbing the wall with the help of an instructor while her friends encourage her from the ground.

She describes herself as: "a 34-year-old with spastic cerebral palsy, severe asthma, an impaired immune system and a fighting spirit."

"This video was taken at Camp Discovery a camp for women wheelchair users to defy their limits," she wrote.

"I firmly believe life in wheels doesnt have to slow you down, in my case it sped me up. I also play murderball for the Houston TIRR Texans, and host a WCMX program , WCMX Houston hosted by Living Beyond Boundaries."

"We only get one go at life so why not live it to the fullest. This trek up the wall earned me the "Spiderman" award at camp Discovery 2017," she added.
