Kareemah Batts, President of the Adaptive Climbing Group, announced that for the first time in history, two adaptive athletes will be competing in USA Climbing’s ABS Open National Championships. The two parathletes, Ronnie Dickson and Corey Ramos, are veteran competitors in the paraclimbing circuit, but this is the first time they are competing against professional climbers at an Open Championship event.

Ronnie Dickson is a board member of the New York based Adaptive Climbing Group, and was one of the team captains for the 2014 USA Paraclimbing team that competed at the IFSC World Cup in Spain. He brought home silver in the amputee category. Corey Ramos is out of Atlanta and represents Catalyst Sports.
