Meet Urko Carmona: The one-legged rock climber



“Never stop climbing” is just one of the motivational posts on Urko Carmona’s Facebook - a creed the Barcelona native lives by, despite only have one leg to do his adventuring with.

Involved in a motorcycle accident when he was just 16 years old, Carmona lost his left leg. That, however, hasn’t stopped him from doing the things he loves.

“Two legs are really easy, but one leg is more adventure,” he says. Carmona proves it as he throws everything he’s got into an inspiring flash attempt on “La der des ders,” an 8a wall in Spain.

Be sure to watch Carmona climb this unspecified overhang earlier this year for even more inspiration.
