Making The Most Of A Bad Situation

Remember that one time that Chris Sharma was going to join Tommy Caldwell and crew for a season on Yosemite’s Dawn Wall but couldn’t because the government shut down and Yosemite was closed?  That was pretty cool uncool.  According to Climbing.com, instead of trying to stick it to the man and try to climb in the park illegally, Sharma has moved on to something else for now:

Kept out of Yosemite by the government shutdown, and thus unable to work on the Dawn Wall as planned, Chris Sharma traveled south for another mega-project: a futuristic route on Clark Mountain.

“High Fives And Redbull”

Andrew Bisharat:

Everyone knows that Instagram serves no purpose other than a way to make your life seem much cooler than it actually is to all your friends and/or followers, the deeper intention, of course, being to simultaneously make them jealous and bolster your own image.

I spent a lot of time nodding my head as I read this post and even laughed out loud at the “high fives and Redbull” part.  I also spent a lot of time being jealous of his trip to Australia….

Chris Sharma To Join Dawn Wall Team

So…this is happening (maybe…hopefully) :

Chris Sharma will join Tommy Caldwell, Kevin Jorgeson, and Jonathan Siegrist for this fall’s attempts on the Dawn Wall, a multi-year project to create the world’s hardest big-wall free climb. The team will begin working on the Dawn Wall this week, pending resolution of the federal government shutdown, which has closed Yosemite National Park.

I’ll be honest, I did a triple take and checked the date on my calendar when I saw this.  Not because I don’t believe that Sharma could excel at this sort of thing, but rather because this is an insane team of climbers to have together on the wall.  Add Dave Graham to the mix and my head might explode.

This leaves us no choice, call your congressman and demand they support Dawn Wall 2013.
