Sharma: again on an 8c onsight!

Huge Chris in Siurana

06 April 2022
Chris Sharma onsights V per Vendetta, 8c.

Despite the forty years Chris Sharma always remains an absolute king. Most of the extreme pitches in Spain have been freed by him and in all likelihood we can call him the most influential climber in history. Starting with a brilliant career from a very young age, Sharma has passed the status of pro-climber, becoming a true icon. Thanks to him and his very American approach, the climb has come to the fore, conquering masses and different generations of climbers.

At the age of 40, with a family and several businesses already underway, Sharma always seems to be fascinated by climbing and with nothing his level returns to the stars. At the In Siurana crag, the good Chris has in fact scored another interesting blow, several years after his peak in form. Seven years after having climbed his last 8c onsight, Sharma climbed in the same style V per vendetta, returning to the same level for the first time since 2015.

The American talent, who won the Nationals for the first time at the age of 14, thus returns to be talked about for his climbing exploits, gathering a lot of support and still making noise, perhaps more than in the past.
