Hugh Herr on his Gunks route Mechanical Boy, New York
At the age of 17, Hugh Herr lost both legs from frostbite when stranded in a blizzard on Mt Washington.  Almost immediately, with no prior training, he began work on creating better prosthetics for himself so he could get back to rock climbing.
And now a Hugh Herr haiku:

Young rock-climbing godWinter’s freeze steals both his legsChanged, he makes new ones.
