Carlos "Citro" Logrono on Desafiando a Noa, 8c+
Video and 5 questions to strong Spanish climber12 February 2016
We met Carlos "Citro" Logroño a couple of years ago at the San Vito Climbing Festival and we see with pleasure that his passion never subside .
At 45 years it has risen a beautiful whim , an 8c+ to Alquézar , Desafiando Noa , for which one of his sponsors made this nice video . So tempting opportunity to contact him again and submit it.
Can you tell something about you: when and where did you start to climb? Where you best area?
I started climbing at the age of 14 when the magazines where in black and white, I mean I've been half a lifetime in the rock and I will continue there the other half. And all this started climbing in Mallos de Riglos, 40km from my home. There are a lot of places and I can't say which is my favorite, but it is clear that Rodellar occupies one of the top.
8c+ at 45 years old: what's your secret?
How many days in a week do you train in a climbing gym and how many climbs outdoor?
lol the secret? There are no secrets when you do something you like. Everything lies in being stubborn and insist, all accompanied by a workout since I do invest approximately 6 days per week between climbing and training. But the truth is that I'd rather be climbing that training at a climbing wall indoor. I usually do two days of indoor and four outdoor.
Climbing is your work?
I can say yes, at least one part of my job as I work for mountain company.
Which are you best ascent??
There have been a few in ice and dry-tooling and also in sport climbing, but I do remember very pleasantly my first 7a and my first 8a.
What is your next target??
Targets? jejejeje I have a lot both in sport climbing and multi pitch but now I am very focused on a route of trad climbing that is very hard both for climbing and for securing as everytime you fall, you loose a secure but I'm there insisting and insisting.
