"During the last 12 months, Chris has done two 9bs, two 9a+, four 9as and three 8c onsight."
That's an impressive ticklist for a lifetime of climbing, let alone 12 months!
Sharma is fooking at the top of his game ! A legend !
I will drink to that !
Maybe he could do 'Wizard Ridge'
Or is he the best? Sounds that way. Impressive stuff. They look like small holds for him too!
> Maybe he could do 'Wizard Ridge'
if you bolted the thing sure
Yes it is near to Darwin Dixit, which Sharma flashed and suggested as 8b.
He really is a machine.
What's he done on grit though?

When was this? I don't recall ever hearing that he had given the Peak district much attention on his lecture tours...

He was in the peak about 6 or 7 years ago. Maybe a bit longer ago. I vaguely recall him doing BP. Or something like that.
Are you sure that wasn't in LA?
He said he was trying Mcclure's mutations at his lecture yesterday. I wonder if he got out today, it was quite a nice day in the Peak!
Not sure but he was at a lecture at MCC before.
It was awesome what a cool life he leads.
He said at the lecture he had been the tor yesterday but didn't sound like he went today.
