ANDRES MARIN SENDS OURAY'S HARDEST MIXED LINES IN A DAY
On December 29, 2012, Marin did the same series of routes: Cinnamon and Cider (M11), theGrand Traverse of the Cave (M11), Gold Line(M10), Fist Full of Steel (M10-), and Troglodyte(M9).
In the past, Marin, who originally hails from Colombia, has sent hard mixed routes on gear such as Chinese Water Torture (M8+RX) andMithy Aphrodite (M9RX). His next big plans involve training for the Alaska alpine season and preparing for an ice climbing demonstration in a bid to include the sport in then 2014 winter Olympics.
