I soon started competing, and was even the second Japanese to win a World Cup Title in 2012. Climbing has allowed me to climbs in beautiful areas, like Ceuse in France and Siurana in Spain. In 2014 I’m planning to climb in the states,” said Amma, “Climbing changed my life and it still gives me energy! I’m excited to see what I can do and accomplish in my life through climbing.”
