2020 Arco Iris 8c+ Lead | worked 9th Oct 2020
First ascent.

Previously the route was an old aid route and before starting to work on the route Edu replaced the existing equipment (with the permission of the first ascenionists). However he bolted the line sportingly, with the crux 8c+ pitch having only 4 bolts!

He was belayed by his father Francisco Marín on the successful ascent.
