Chris Sharma has pulled another one out of the hat, adding to the tally of 9a's in the Sta Linya cave: Analogica. He did this in front of the cameras of the film crew who was about to interview him about the current access problems in the cave. Sometimes a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do, but the timing couldn't have been anymore perfect!
Víctor Fernández: Chris told me once ... "often you would like to be in two places at once, but this is impossible so you have to enjoy wherever you are and forget what you are missing", and that is what he did yesterday.
I'm guessing this wasn't one of his major projects, as 9a is, more or less, something he could do every other day. OK, that's probably a slight exaggeration, but Chris would without a doubt prefer to spend his time on one of his main projects, like First round, first minute or Neanderthal, both believed to be in the 9b-or-harder-range.
