Diego Casas is a rock climber born in Guadalajara on April 6 of 1995, who became a rock climber at the indoor wall called «Punto Muerto». There, he learned the basics for rock climbing in the modalities of sport climbing and bouldering. From there, he has been evolving as a climber; this process led him to discover his greatest inspiration in traditional climbing and big walling. What he enjoys the most is the long experience of taking his feet off the ground upon big walls; he has ascents at the “Chief” in Squamish, as well as the second ascent to the Amapola Express, a traditional route on the “Gigante” in Chihuahua, Mexico. Diego and his partner climbed it in 7 days in October 2019. Diego has many projects for the future and currently he wants to focus on traditional routes of hard difficulty, especially in small cracks such as the Cobra Crack (5.14b), which he has gotten to one fall in order to free climb it. As well as projecting routes on big walls and carrying out some openings, that means the development of new climbing lines or routes, so other people can have the opportunity to try something new and this incredible sport can keep expanding.
He has realized that climbing for him is what most he likes to do; making it a lifestyle is his dream. Diego sees himself working with brands and climbing around the world; at the same time, providing support to those who need it. Currently, he is an active member of Awe Seekers.
