/ NEW ARTICLE: Kendal Speaker Profile: Chris Sharma
Chris Sharma will be at the Kendal Mountain Festival on 19-22 November. Mick Ryan gives us a brief profile of Chris.
" I can remember bouldering with the Brit, Jerry Peel from Lancashire at the Peabody boulders in the Buttermilk Country home to such Sharma milestones as the Mandala. Jerry spotted Sharma bouldering over at the Grandma Peabody and was dying to meet him. We walked over, introductions were made, I think I introduced Jerry as one of the John Gill's of UK bouldering, and they posed for photographs together. Jerry was as pleased a punch."
.......and Björn Pohl finds out what Sharma thinks of bouldering and routes these days.
