Urko Carmona started rock climbing when he was 14 years old. Then, at the young age of 16 he lost his leg in a car accident, but that didn’t stop him. Urko kept climbing, and starting logging incredible accomplishments on the rock, but just as impressive as his climbing is his perspective. He took what would be a tragedy for most people, and turned it into a positive experience.
