I was born in Azpeitia the 04/02/1981

I started climbing at age 15 in the rocks closest to my village.

What I like most about climbing is atmosphere with friends, grab on and have fun.

GorkaMainly I like and the sporting aspect, although I've also climbed in places such as Yosemite, Eiger north face, Naranjo, Ordesa or Psicoblock de Mallorca where I became I went up against the wall made famous by the release of Two Smoking Barrels.

What motivates me most is simply rock climbing, although I also also compete in national competitions where I have achieved some results such as the Champion of Euskadi from 2006 - 2009, or 3rd and 4th overall in the crown of Spain , where I was second in some stages. I have also participated in the Dimarock Master and Master Rock Dur & go.
