WAY TO GO, CHRIS!!! Adam Ondra claims "La Dura Dura" (limestone) is harder than "Change" (granite), making the hardest sport climb in the world a limestone route. LIMESTONE RULES!! Another inspirational effort by Chris.

I love his comment on the name in the video. "Which one are you going to do today chris?" "La dura" "which one is that? They're all hard!" "La dura dura"

Watching him bolt it on lead was too cool!!!

Yeah, that's right mock what you can't do or bring myself to understand. You don't have the growl or gnar or talent to touch the moves on a 9b+, but you have the gall to mock the tools and tactiics they use to achieve 9b+. if Sharma and Ondra stepped into your gym all the punks would be emulating them. You'd be the punk.
Right on Leggs, you said it. So inspirational to see Sharma still fighting to remain on the cutting edge. Even with his achievements he's a kind, humble, and gracious guy.

Next competitoin between Sharma and Ondra:

Who has been, and in the future, is most likely to get laid?

hint: who travels in a van with their parents?

Chris was just in St. Louis at the So.IL gym and he was most gracious making sure everyone who wanted got a signed poster, plus I got to see him send a 5.14 in the gym, quite impressive. I saw him compete years earlier, I believe he was 15, as was Katie Brown who also competed. I admire his dedication and still at the head of the table.

I'm sure Sharma cares that you would like to see him do trad.

What I like too, rurprider, is that he seems so bright-eyed about everything he tackles, the people he meets and climbs with and the varied environments he finds himself in.

PC ... right?!

He will. When he reaches his limit and gets bored, then trad will be the next thing... I would imagine anyways...
