Synopsis

Francisco Marin, also known as “Novato” (“Rookie” in Spanish), is a 61-year-old climber and the only known person in the world to climb at this level at his age. He reached his maximum sporting achievement on 24th September 2012, when he sent “Geminis”, an 8b+ (5.14a) line, and nowadays he has “Florida” as a project, an impressive 8c (5.14b) route. All of them are located in Rodellar, Spain. He has a long-term ambition to achieve 9a grade before the age of 70. His astonishing merits in sport combined with his special and specific point of view in life make “Novato” an example for everybody. He values effort, honor, perseverance and honesty in his life and his climbing. This film transcends the climbing world, inspiring and motivating all those who know his story. It’s not about sport, it’s about life. ‘Best Character’ Ushuaia Shh International Mountain Film Festival 2015. Best Sport Film Award at Ull-Nu Film Festival 2015. People Choice Award Fescinat 2014.
