Nat Geo Blog Catches Up With Chris Sharma

Nat Geo Blog Catches Up With Chris Sharma

Via The Adventure Blog comes this interview that Chris Sharma did with the Nat Geo Adventure blog.  Topics covered range from his relocation to Spain to his continuing quest to push his limits as far as he can:

I did the world’s first 5.15 and it literally took me seven years to push my limits to become a good enough climber to do that 15b. It’s an exponential difference. Working on a climb that would be 15c is something that has never been done. And you just have to work really hard toward it. Living in Spain is my laboratory. I have all these different projects near my house. I have an unlimited amount of time to work on them.

    I find his answer to the last question interesting.  Not that Daniel and Ashima are pretty much at the pinnacle of the sport right now (or rather Ashima will be once she’s a little older), but I wonder why he mentioned them as opposed to other similarly promising climbers. 

    That said, I’d really like to see what Daniel could do on something like Spanish limestone if he spent a year training endurance.
