Edu Marin has climbed in Santa Linya for years, but one of the few routes he has left is Seleccion Anal, a stiff 9a+ that Adam Ondra has been trying to flash this trip. The winter temperatures in Spain prove challenging; mornings are cold, and by midday the rock gets too hot. But Edu is in some of the best shape of his life, and now focuses all his power and endurance on this route. Unfortunately, with such a short daily window of optimal conditions, it doesn't go for him this time. Luckily for Edu, he has ample opportunity to return and try again.
Edu Marin In Best Shape Of His Life On 9a+ Seleccion Anal | Epic Climber Spain, Ep. 3
In the second series of Epic Climber, we invite four of the world's best climbers (Adam Ondra, Chris Sharma, Sasha DiGiulian and Edu Marin) to Spain, where each of them will pick a route to try over the course of the trip. Edu will try his hand at 9a+ Seleccion Anal, with Adam attempting the world's first 9a+ flash on the same, as well as attempting a repeat of Chris' 9b Stoking The Fire. Chris tries to open a brand new route, with Sasha returning to an old project of hers, 8c Digital System.
Everyone's been busy with their lives, but now is the perfect opportunity to catch up with old friends and enjoy a weekend in Spain. We follow the trip through each climbers perspective, exploring what it takes to be one of the world's greatest climbers.
