ES ANDREA CARTAS

 

I was born in 1982 in the South of Spain, Málaga.

When I was fiveteen i find a climbing gym in my town and I began to climb.

I've been competing since 2007 in the Spain's Cup and championship and I won the 2008 and 2009 editions of the Cup and the 2009 Spain's Shampionship.

I have some experience in Internationals, but I don ́t train for this. Last year I was in Dur&Go Master, it was a very nice experience! I think Masters are great fun!AndreaCartas

In the rocks, I love to climb in limestone a little bit overhanging with a small crimps and technical and powerful moves.

I usually go climb to Cuenca, because it's near my home, but I like to visit diferent spots around the country like Cataluña, Andalucía or Alicante. My favourite crags are Margalef, Rodellar, Cuenca and Bruixes.

On sight, I've done some 7c+'s and my best redpoints are "Botanics" (8b+, Rodellar) and "Akelarre" (8b+, Orihuela). I've done a few other nices 8b's around the country.

I love to travel and I try to make a big trip every year; I've been twice in Thainland, once in Kalimnos, USA, France, Austria, Italia, Portugal, Morocco... and last year China, in "Yangshuo".
