Chris Sharma has started 2011 in the same fashion he finished 2010: by making a FA of a 9a+.
Chris who is firmly settled since some years in Catalunya, has multiple projects on different crags all over the place. The one that went down the other day, Catxasa was at the modern classic hard core venue of Santa Linya. The route, which links into La Febela, was bolted by Dani Andrada and has, according to Daila Ojeda, been tried by both Adam Ondra and Tomás Mrázek. To what extent, I have no idea.
