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:

Ethan Pringle On Jumbo Love

Ethan Pringle is back at Mt. Clark, home to that one route first done by that one guy:

Projecting a route like this requires all of your attention, and having to devote all of your attention to a route like this can get really tiring really fast. At some point, you just want to get it over with. Of course, afterward you feel a mix of relief and loss. Relief that you’re done and the epic is over, and loss that this magnificent line doesn’t require your presence anymore. But for me, I think I’ll have to take a nice long break from serious route projects for a little while after this. Like Randy Levitt said, “It’s like a limestone El Cap.” Obviously, that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but it does sort of convey the amount of work required to complete a project of this caliber.

Pringle is no stranger to Jumbo Love, having tried it even before its FA back in 2008. You can see some footage of those attempts here.
