A group of disabled veterans is marking the ​13th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks by tackling some of the toughest climbs at Yosemite National Park.

The team is climbing with Paradox Sports, a nonprofit that helps disabled vets enjoy life-affirming experiences. It was founded by veteran DJ Skelton, who lost an eye and half of his jaw in Iraq.

Cody Elliot strapped on his climbing leg for the mission. The 24-year-old Marine was injured by an IED in Afghanistan.

The group is climbing as a wildfire rages nearby.

Once they reach the summit, they will have a moment of silence before celebrating their achievement.
