+Chris Sharma, Forbidden Fruit, Arkansas, 95 kb A report on SuperTopo states that Chris Sharma has onsighted two impressive F8c routes this week.

"So, this past week Chris shows up for some climbing at Maple Canyon and proceeds to first onsight T-Rex (14b) and then over the weekend to onsight Devine Fury (14b). 

What makes this even more impressive is the fact that both of these routes (especially Fury) are pretty beta intensive and the climbing is made much easier by knowing when and where to use kneebars, drop knees and other such trickery. Chris climbed both of these without knowing any of this."

If this report is accurate then Sharma is clearly putting his current fitness to good use following his recent redpoint of the mega route Jumbo Love at Clark Mountain (UKC News Report).
