Climbing Mag Interviews Chris Sharma

Climbing Mag Interviews Chris Sharma

Climbing Magazine has gone ahead and posted the feature interview with Chris Sharma from their current issue on their website.  In the wide-ranging interview Sharma discusses taking a year off in his late teens due to a knee injury, his latest projects, his ill-fated attempt to flash The Nose, settling down in Spain, how he plans to stay connected to the climbing community as he grows older and much more.

In addition, there are several excellent Boone Speed photos of Sharma on a few of his potential 5.15 projects including the well-documented First Round, First Minute at Margalef, Perfecto Mondo, also at Margalef, and an unnamed project at Oliana that Sharma has more or less given up on since it mainly involves small holds.

    “mainly involves small holds” let Paul or Daniel have a go they love small holds.

        I hear it wants to climb everything, all the overhanging, all the vertical…

        When he said “take me to your leader” the Spaniards took him to Sharma, and the rest was was inevitable.

    lmao – I really want to send this to my ex-wife…

    “So about your label as a spiritual climber…

    What I don’t like about the idea of being a “spiritual person,” is it’s like, OK, I’m a spiritual person, so I’m going to act all peaceful and try to be all saintly or something. But if you’re feeling pissed off in the moment, it’s much more true to be pissed off than try to act all peaceful.”

    sorry, unnecessary comment – couldn’t resist…
