Andres Marin to Coach Carolyn Parker


(via satellite) Hey Coach! We just came down from climbing Great Trango and Nameless Towers. Climbing was hard as shit!! Now we’re recovering. Things here are awesome and all the training I did paid off big time! Thank you! We have 10 days left and I’m feeling like I can do another climb if the weather holds. Thinking of the American Direct on Great Trango in a push. Hope all is well in your world. Much love from the Karakoram.

Note: A few days later Andres successfully climbed the American Direct on Great Trango in 11 hours 30 minutes, round trip from BC. He wrote: “Thanks for everything you helped me with! You da best!”
