After a prolonged, well documented and at times even controversial battle, Chris Sharma has done the first ascent of his First Round First Minute project in Margalef, Spain according this post on girlfriend Daila Ojeda’s blog. Sharma, who turns 30 on Saturday, had spent the past few years working on the short, bouldery route only to fall repeatedly on the last move leading some to speculate the route could be 5.15b.
More details as they come, but until then here is a clip of Sharma trying FRFM from the 2010 Reel Rock Film Tour:
Update: As usual these days PlanetMountain has the interview with Sharma discussing the send
Update #2: Rock & Ice has a nice write up by Andrew Bisharat who recently spent time with Sharma in Spain and has a few more words from Chris himself about how the day went. Apparently Sharma sent FRFM on a whim after trying a potential 5.15c project earlier in the day.
