He has conquered two Auckland landmarks and now Jordon Milroy is one step closer to reaching the top of the world’s tallest building.
The central Auckland student appeared in the Auckland City Harbour News on September 27 to announce he would climb the Auckland Harbour Bridge to mark World Cerebral Palsy Day.
Mr Milroy, who has a severe form of the condition, successfully completed the climb in 90 minutes on October 2.
It is an amazing feeling, he says.
‘‘Over the one and a half hours it took to climb it made me think about my disability and how lucky I am to be able to climb amazing stuff.’’
Reaching the top was the easy part but the downward return proved to be harder, he says.
He also tackled the Sky Tower’s 1029 stairs in April last year, Auckland City Harbour News, April 4, 2012. A longterm goal of Mr Milroy’s is to climb Dubai’s 830m Burj Khalifa.
