His hands feel around for every edge and fissure of the hard rock face. Very slowly. Beneath Andy Holzer there is nothing but the void. Far above him is the Laserz face. An almost vertical edge which rises 2,614 metres into the sky of the Lienz Dolomites. Andy Holzer feels the mountain, he cannot see – the 42year-old was born blind. He aims to climb the highest summit of every continent, the Seven Summits.
