12/20/10 – News link: Just as Ethan Pringle wrapped up a Chris Sharma–equipped route in China, Sharma himself opened a new 5.15a in Oliana, Spain, called Power Inverter. This is his third at the grade at this cliff, following Papichulo and Pachamama.
At the same time, Dani Andrada managed to send his project, Duele la Realidad (5.14d), also at Oliana. Both routes were equipped by the respective climbers.
“It was fun watching them cheer each other on while they climbed,” Daila Ojeda, Sharma’s girlfriend, says on her blog. “It was motivating for everybody at the cliff.”
Below is a video showcasing Sharma’s attempts on Pachamama by Big Up Productions.
