Sachi Amma (born September 23, 1989) is a Japanese professional Rock climber and Sport climber. He won the IFSC Climbing World Cup twice, in 2012 and 2013.

Biography[edit]

In 2006 he started competing at the World Cup, in the Lead climbing discipline, and won the Cup twice, in 2012 and 2013. In 2009, 2010 and 2012 he also competed, occasionally, in the Bouldering discipline, with less encouraging results.

He mainly climbs indoor, but he also proved to be one of the strongest rock climbers in the world, by redpointing three routes graded 9a+ (5.15a): Papichulo (Oliana), Pachamama (Oliana), and La Rambla (Siurana).
