🇺🇸Never stop climbing🇺🇸 Rock Climbing November, I also call it my RCN, has been pretty tough; many falls, few scrapes and some telling me to reconsider my end goal. but.. All it took was one successful climb. All it took was faith in myself All it took was to persevere All it took was for me to never stop climbing. No matter how tall a wall is, never stop climbing No matter how much it hurts, never stop climbing. No matter what, never stop climbing Behind the lenses 🎥 @austinrey91 . . . 🇨🇦 Jamais cesser de grimper 🇨🇦 Novembre d'escalade, que j'appelle aussi mon NE, a été assez difficile; plusieurs chutes, quelques égratignures et certains me recommandent de reconsidérer mon objectif final. mais.. . . Tout ce qu'il a fallu, c'est une montée réussie. Il suffisait de croire en moi-même Il suffisait de persévérer Il me suffisait de ne jamais arrêter de grimper. Car Peu importe la hauteur d'un mur, il ne faut jamais cesser de grimper Peu importe la douleur, il ne faut jamais cesser de grimper. Quoi qu'il en soit, il ne faut jamais cesser de grimper.

The 23-year-old from Montreal was born with cerebral palsy, which makes it difficult for him to walk. But not rock climbing!

In a video posted on his Instagram account, Belfort scales an indoor climbing wall in Allez Up Climbing/Escalade in Montreal, Canada while strapped in his wheelchair.

Currently, Belfort is training with the hopes of earning a spot on Canada's wheelchair basketball Paralympic team.

As a young kid, he remembers as soon as he was old enough to maneuver his wheelchair, he began playing basketball, which he calls his "first love." It remains one of his favorite sports today.

"I hope that youth realize the only limit they have is within themselves," he said.

He wrote in his rock climbing post:
