Chris Sharma has made the FA of his well known First round, first minute-project in the Laboratory sector at Margalef....

Fantastic news and congratulations to Chris (plus Daniel!). I'm surprised there has been so little response to this! Or is everyone waiting for more detail? From the sounds of it no one was filming which as many of Chris' big ascents have been caught on camera feels like an anticlimax. That said there's so much footage of him climbing frfm in progression and the reel rock DVD that I can just watch that! I wander what his other big project that he's close on is?!

In reply to Björn Pohl - UKC: Agreed- puzzling lack of excitement! This is huge. Looks like the second of a new breed of hard climb. Until Ondra's route La Capella in February, it seemed like the way to make things harder was to make them longer (e.g. Jumbo Love). So now we have La Capella 9b, 15m and FRFM 9b, 25 moves. And so, to stay fashionable, I suppose I should quit endurance training and try to get strong....

You could always try Chilam Balam. That's a 'soft' 9b that just needs endurance :-)
