Last year Chris Sharma teamed up with his good friend, mentor and climbing legend Marc Le Menestrel. They bolted a beautiful and savage route in La Cova de l'Ocell called "El Hombre Que No Ama". It's a cool mix of crimpy "old school" climbing mixed with a futuristic vision. Chris likes to call it "Futuristic Old School".
