Pierre Délas, who interviewed Chris Sharma for Kairn, has brought to my attention that Chris, in the interview, actually says that his ascent of Infinity lane, the "ultimate route", wasn't a flash at all.
The first part, around 8b, is also the first part of Les chemins de Katmandou, a three pitch 8c, which he climbed a few years ago with Laurent Triay.
Thanks Pierre!
Here's a great video from BigUp of Chris working his own Pachamama, 9a+, at Oliana, Spain.
