Chapter 2: Novato Marín, the 61 years old climber who sent 8b+

Uploaded by namussfilms

Francisco Marin has been climbing longer than most of us have been on the planet. At 61, he's led a life most of us dream of, and here we get a small taste of what a life full of passion can provide. Francisco Mari­n, also known as 'Novato' ('Rookie' in Spanish), is a 61-year-old climber; the only known one in the world to climb such grade at his age. We can all learn a thing or two from this amazing man... From the caravan where he stays during his long climbing periods, Novato shares with us some of the most important moment in his life, and ends climbing "Géminis", the spectacular 8b+ (5.14a) that made him part of the climbing history.
