Edu Marin

 

Edu was born on August 13, 1985 in Barcelona. He started to climb as he was a child and already won lots of competitions all around Spain.

Very quickly, he fully delicated his life to climbing (lead, boulder, dry tooling) and achieved great performances both indoor (4 times ranked second at Spanish championships) and outdoor (La Rambla, 9a+).
 

But due to a series of injuries in 2012 and then in 2014 he started to turn to multi pitch routes. He teamed up with Sacha Di Giulan (El Viaje de los locos) then with his own father (Francisco Marin) with whom he realized Panorama (8c) in the Dolomites. The adventure was great, the ropeteam was symbiotic and the performance was even more exceptional as his father was 62 years old.

 

In 2015,  they did the four hardest routes in the Alps: Orbayu (au Naranjo de Bulnes), la voie Petit, Digital Crack (Mont Blanc massif) and Samsara (Austria).
