Sharma – Two F8c Onsights This Week

by Jack Geldard – Editor – UKC A report on SuperTopo states that Chris Sharma has onsighted two impressive F8c routes this week. “So, this past week Chris shows up forsome climbing at Maple Canyon and proceeds to first onsight T-Rex (14b)and then over the weekend to onsight Devine Fury (14b). Whatmakes this even more impressive is the fact that both of these routes(especially Fury) are pretty beta intensive and the climbing is mademuch easier by knowing when and where to use kneebars, drop knees andother such trickery. Chris climbed both of these without knowing any ofthis.” If this report is accurate then Sharma is clearly putting his current fitness to good use following his recent redpoint of the mega route Jumbo Love at Clark Mountain (UKC News Report).
