Diego Lopez Montull

 

I was born in Mexico City, where I started climbing when I was fourteen. I started at U.N.A.M., University National Autonomus of Mexico, a form of punishment from my parents because I had some problems in school. It was there I started climbing and for many years I was the youngest and in climber in Mexico. At sixteen I took my first climbing trip in the USA. After this trip I knew I wanted to work up to a professional level. At eighteen I decided to go to Europe for first time and stay for three years in different countries.

From that moment on, I traveled to many parts of the world for rock climbing. I spend about three months of the year in Mexico climbing in my favorite areas; Peñoles, which I developed in the last ten years and Basasiachi (Copper Canyon), an area where I lived for nearly three years and developed for nine years. Also Taxco Cave, which I discovered eight years ago. I enjoy opening new routes and boulders in many other countries beyond Mexico, the USA, Spain and Switzerland. Personally I have always seen climbing as a style of art rather than a sport. I could not stop doing this sport because its what makes me happy. Besides that I do wish to improve as a climber and as a human. Normally i climb for six days, either in a  climbing gym or on the rock, and rest for one. If I'm outside I'm out till the sun goes down, in the gym I go for 5 hours. I have participated in two World Cups, representing Mexico. The last few years I am more focused on the boulder, but in the past i do climb big walls and sport climbing. For long periods of time i lived in the mountains and in cave, even in the streets of several cities through extreme weather for the love of the sport.
