"During the last 12 months, Chris has done two 9bs, two 9a+, four 9as and three 8c onsight."
That's an impressive ticklist for a lifetime of climbing, let alone 12 months!

In reply to UKC News: So is Sharma generally considered by those in the know to be back at the top of the sport then? I know around the time Patxi Usogobia (?) onsighted that 8c+, and adam ondra and edu marin etc were crushing in siurana, there was talk that perhaps Sharma wasnt the best in the world. Recently though he seems to be producing a LOT of hard routes. Is it a case of we only here about his? Or is it that Usogobia/Ramon Julien etc are all in their 6 month training period or something?

Or is he the best? Sounds that way. Impressive stuff. They look like small holds for him too!

Yes it is near to Darwin Dixit, which Sharma flashed and suggested as 8b.

When was this? I don't recall ever hearing that he had given the Peak district much attention on his lecture tours...

He was in the peak about 6 or 7 years ago. Maybe a bit longer ago. I vaguely recall him doing BP. Or something like that.

He said he was trying Mcclure's mutations at his lecture yesterday. I wonder if he got out today, it was quite a nice day in the Peak!
