Chris Sharma's meteoric climbing career started when he won the Bouldering Nationals at age 14, and opened the hardest climb in America (at the time, 5.14c) a year later. In the decade that followed, Chris has continued to take climbing to a new level, consistently shattering previous conceptions of difficulty. He has climbed multiple 5.15 routes, bouldered V15, onsighted 5.14b, and established deep water solo routes at the highest grades.
Chris holds claim to the current hardest route in America, with his ascent of Jumbo Love at Clark Mountain in California.
These days Chris has been establishing a string of 5.15 routes in Spain, where he now lives with his girlfriend Daila Ojeda and their black lab Chaxi.
