Hans Christian Montenegro

 

 My name is Hans Christian Montenegro and I am a Colombian rock climber living in Montreal, Canada. I stepped foot in a climbing gym for the first time in 1996 in Belgium when some friends brought me to do route climbing. I had never even heard of it before! When I was there, I remember the most incredible feeling of flying through the air. My passion for climbing grew and soon brought me to competitive climbing. Now, many years later, I still thirst for challenges and finding my limits. I have climbed in France, Belgium, Spain, Canada and Colombia. I push my way through difficult moves with a combination of physical strength and mental equilibrium. For me, climbing is my world; my way of life. Climbing is how you find yourself, and learn that the world is a unity that you are part of.Currently, I am in graduate school and striving to strike a balance between my professional life and climbing life. Climbing not just an individual sport for me- I am supported by my entire “team”-- my fellow climbers, my friends, my girlfriend, my family, my sponsor—who give me boundless strength, encouragement and advice.
