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.
