Two 5.15s In A Day At Oliana For Chris Sharma

Two 5.15s In A Day At Oliana For Chris Sharma

Since turning 30 a few weeks back do you think Chris Sharma spends his free time watching the Climbing After 30 series to keep his motivation up??  Whatever he’s doing is working because yesterday Sharma managed to fire off two 5.15s at Oliana with one of them being a first ascent.

Writing on her blog, Daila Ojeda describes how Sharma warmed up by trying a likely 5.15 project that combines Papichulo and Pachamama.  From there he tried to repeat Chaxiraxi, the 5.15b first done by Adam Ondra a few weeks ago, only to fall on “the last move of the boulder problem”.

Not deterred, Sharma then went on and cleaned up an old project of his dubbed Fight Or Flight at a suggested grade of 5.15b.  To finish up the day he climbed Chaxi (5.15a) which climbs most of Chaxiraxi but bypasses the aforementioned difficult (possibly V14 in its own right) boulder problem at the bottom.

Not a bad day for an old guy…
