Chris Sharma, who has been spending a lot of time on the road lately, has finally found a worthy project on US soil, or rock to be exact.
Now that the Dawn wall project is out of play for the time being, Chris has once again set his sights on a mega project at Clark Mountain in the Californian desert.
Yeah, it's a super amazing route! It's a direct start to Jumbo love [Chris' unrepeated ~9b], so long and continuously hard.
It's like a hard 8c or so into Jumbo love without any rest.
Nice to have a rad project here in the US as well.
According to Climbing Magazine, who talked to Randy Leavitt, the direct start Chris is talking about is an old Jorge Visser project, plus a hard boulder crux above it, straight into the hard climbing of Jumbo love.
To the best of my knowledge, Chris Sharma has yet to fail on a project he has gone public on... This one sounds like a beast though.
