In 2008, he also added the Carstensz Pyramid in West Papua New Guinea, the tallest peak in Australasia, thus completing the more respected Seventh Summit.

In 2005, he co-founded No Barriers, a nonprofit organization with the tagline, "What’s within you is stronger than what’s in your way." The organization helps people of diverse backgrounds and abilities to attack challenges head on, problem solve, build winning teams, and serve others. In September 2014, Weihenmayer and blinded Navy veteran, Lonnie Bedwell, kayaked the entire 277 miles (446 km) of the Grand Canyon, considered one of the most formidable whitewater locations in the world. Today, while still adventuring, he is a prominent worldwide speaker, focusing on the topic of living a "No Barriers Life." (en)

  • Erik Weihenmayer (New Jersey, 23 september 1968) is een Amerikaans bergbeklimmer die op 25 mei 2001 als eerste blinde de top bereikte van de Mount Everest. Daarnaast is hij acrobatisch skydiver, lange afstand-wielrenner, marathonloper en skiër. September 2002 voltooide hij de zeven toppen. Weihenmayer woont in Boulder, Colorado. In 2004 ondernam hij samen met de Nederlander Paul Kronenberg, de eveneens blinde Duitse Sabriye Tenberken en tieners van de blindenschool in Lhasa, Tibet, de beklimming van de Mount Everest. Hierbij werden ze begeleid door een Amerikaanse filmploeg. Vanwege slechte weersomstandigheden moesten ze deze tocht echter afbreken. Van deze klim werd door de Britse filmregisseur Lucy Walker de documentaire Blindsight gemaakt. Deze film ontving meerdere prijzen. De Nederlandse documentaire filmer volgde Weihenmayer in 2006 tijdens de 'Leading the Way' expeditie in Peru. Tijdens deze expeditie begeleidde Erik een groep blinde en slechtziende Amerikaanse tieners over het Andes gebergte van Cusco naar Machu Picchu. De documentaire over de expeditie Fellowship of the Andes werd op 28 oktober 2006 in New York vertoond in het bijzijn van de blind en slechtziende tieners. (nl)
