Elderly Woman Loses Prosthetic Limb While Rock Climbing, Contintues Regarless


This is the breathtaking moment that an elderly amputee comfortably climbed 

the top of a rock climbing wall – despite losing a limb as she attempted the 

energy-sapping task.

Dot, who lost one of her leg when she was plagued with a blood clot four 

years ago, was scaling the wall at the Glasgow Climbing Centre when the 

gaffe occurred.

Her prosthetic leg is seen falling to the ground, but Dot didn't relent.

‘It’s alright, it’s just your leg that’s fell off’, a man below shouts as the limb 

falls to the ground.




Shockingly, it was the first time that Dot had made attempt climbing.

She has this to say to Scottish Sun: ‘I only went along to see what it was all 

about and ended up at the top of the wall.’

The exceptional footage was captured last week during Scottish amputee 

charity Finding Your Feet’s monthly trip to the climbing centre.




Ashley Reid who is a  Charity member  said: ‘Dot was half way up the wall 

when her leg fell off and someone managed to capture it on camera.

‘Despite the fact she had lost her leg, she climbed all the way to the top of 

the wall and then climbed all the way back down. She has such an amazing 

personality and sense of humour – we love that she just kept going.’
