Edu Marin tops out Eternal Flame 7c+ MP at 6 251m after 28 days

25 July 2022

Eduard Marin has done the first repeat of the Huber brother's Eternal Flame from 2009, which is a 650m 7c+ to the top of Nameless Tower (Trango Tower) at 6 251m in Pakistan. Already in 1989, a team including Kurt Albert and Wolfgang Güllich made it to the top but not free. The Spaniard, who won the Chamonix World Cup in 2006, did it in a single push and was assisted by his brother Alex and their 70-year-old father Francisco. Edu spent 28 days on the wall, out of which 13 alone sleeping at The Snow Ledge at 5 700, waiting out bad weather, most of them without leaving the tent. Edu made it to the top also in 2021 without freeing two pitches due to bad weather. More info on his Insta.

In 2019, the 37-year-old made the FA of the world's hardest multi-pitch, Valhalla 9a+ in Getu in China. The 17 pitches overhang 300+ meters and he projected it for some 170 days including 50 just bolting. In total, he has redpointed some 20 routes 9a or 9a+ and onsighted some 15 routes 8b+ or 8c. In other words, he has one of the most impressive multi-discipline track records in the world.
