Chris Sharma: The Legacy Continues

Chris Sharma: The Legacy Continues (view)

Chris Sharma's meteoric climbing career started when he won the Bouldering Nationals at age 14 and opened the hardest climb in America (at the time, 5.14c) a year later. In the decade that followed, Chris has continued to take climbing to a new level. Not only has he consistently shattered previous conceptions of difficulty, he was recently voted 8a Climber of the Decade. He has sent multiple 5.15 routes, bouldered V15, onsighted 5.14b, and established deep water solo routes at the highest grades. Chris holds claim to the current hardest route in America, and perhaps the world, with his ascent of Jumbo Love at Clark Mountain in California. Chris has a lot on his plate this year with a new house in Spain, establishing a string of 5.15 routes and climbing almost daily with his girlfriend Daila Ojeda. The area around their home is considered one of the hotspots for the sport globally with more than 70 crags featuring steep limestone caves and seemingly endless possibilities. It looks like Chris will have plenty of time to perfect his Spanish accent... For more on Chris visit:
