chris_sharma After many months of working out the subtleties of this beautiful line by @marti_boncombat it feels like it's in the home stretch. The last two days on the route I fell on the last moves. Its a dream route with some very technical, powerful moves that require a lot of coordination and muscle memory. With so many low percentage moves, everything has to be just right , you have to be amped but let it flow effortlessly. It could go down next try or next year. Uff. Lets hope it's not the latter. awesome footage by @giancolafoto @prana @redbull @sanukfootwear @evolvusa @sterlingrope @walltopia @climbskinspain @metoliusclimbing @petzl_official @psicocomp @diegomarsella 2d

chris_sharma @giancolafoto Bit by bit I've been widdling away on this epic line bolted a while back my @marti_boncombat . I've had some breakthroughs over the last few freezing days. It's so satisfying to progress on a line that previously felt out of my league. Time to hone in, focus and bear down. The harder they come, the harder they fall! Thanks for the support @marc.lemenestrel y mi amor @alarconjimena te amo️!

chris_sharma @brettlowell Mallorca, my power spot. I've gone back year after year and every time this place just blows my mind. For me it's as good as it gets. Mixing bouldering, sport, adventure climbing and the sea; Psicobloc is one of the most full value and purest forms of climbing. I can't wait till the water warms up a bit and have some more goes on this project I've been working on and off over the last few years. This is the crux section somewhere around 50 ft up. So good! @prana @redbull @evolvusa @sanukfootwear @clifbarcompany @walltopia @sterlingrope @petzl_official @marcfernandezcolom @mallorcatopadventure @marti_boncombat @alarconjimena @giancolafoto 4w

chris_sharma Nice photo by @giancolafoto via @prana . I just got home from an epic session at Cova de Ocell. Some very aesthetic routes and some very futuristic lines. These cold temps are perfect for the small crimps. I love this place and I love climbing!!!! 4w

chris_sharma The last few days @alarconjimena and I have been wrapping up our visit here in the USA for the time being. It's been great seeing all my friends and family, climbing at my local stomping ground, getting some important work done with my sponsors and making some exciting plans for the year. I will miss everyone, but for now I can't wait to get back to España and get back to work on a couple very special projects that have been in the works for quite some time. Sending everyone lots of positive vibes and motivation!!!!

chris_sharma It's been so inspiring seeing @tommycaldwell and @kjorgeson realize their quest on the Dawn Wall. I had the opportunity to spend a few days with them on it last year and can personally attest to how overwhelmingly hard and long that route is. Also super psyched from my friends @brettlowell @coreyrichproductions @joshlowell @bigupclimbing for being there to capture and share the magic with the world. This shot of Tommy and I from 1995 or so was from my first real road trip around the western US. We went around ticking off most of the hardest routes in the country at the time. I learned a lot from him about working on projects and how hard you have to work and how patient and dedicated you need to be. Its so great to see those principles come to fruition on such a large scale. Congrats guys! 2mon

chris_sharma Back in Santa Cruz, my hometown. It's interesting how we can comeback to the same places again and again and each time see it a little different and learn something new. After having spent so much time overseas and in other far off places I have so much appreciation for where I come from and the people I grew up with. Panther Beach is a place that had a huge influence on my climbing and who I am. When I was recovering from a knee injury when I was 17, I would do my rehab by riding my bike up the coast everyday and then climb barefoot for hours on end making up endless eliminates. I once did 45 days without a single restday. It was an amazing place to reconnect with climbing and nature in it's purest form. Nothing difficult comes without having to work hard for it, but when it's something you love the effort and discipline come naturally. Photo by my amazing fiancé @alarconjimena I'm so excited for what lies ahead for us mi amor! 2mon

chris_sharma @giancolafoto So good to be immersed and feeling fit on this amazing project at Cova De Ocell. I had a big break through today and I'm beginning to feel that this thing may be within my reach. The process of working a route at your limit can have a lot of ups and downs, I find it key to always look for bits of progress every time I go climbing (no matter how small) to stay motivated. It's a constant learning process and you have to take your beatings both physically and mentally. Will be great when this thing comes together! Gracias @marti_boncombat @marc.lemenestrel @giancolafoto para la buena compania! @prana @sanukfootwear @evolvusa @redbull @petzl_official @walltopia @sterlingrope @climbskin 2mon

chris_sharma Nice shot from @simoncarter_onsight on the classic Groove Train from last year in the Grampians, Australia that is in his new book and calendar of climbing around Australia. I can't wait to make it back there sometime soon. The last trip was way too short. Such an amazing place. @prana @evolvusa @sanukfootwear @sterlingrope @climbskinspain @andrewbisharat @lmurdoch @metoliusclimbing @walltopia @psicocomp @petzl_official @clifbarcompany @redbull 3mon

chris_sharma Mother Nature never ceases to amaze. Last week I got back from an amazing trip from the mind blowing Venezuelan Tepuys with my girl @alarconjimena @emiliyank @ngwinner @mikecall @trepalaroca @polacsystem @emiliyank @matiasvarela1 @irving_matthew @metoliusclimbing many others . I can't wait to go back. This shot was taken however from my first trip there 8 years back on Kukenan Tepuy with @brettlowell @lev_pinter @trepalaroca when we were shooting the film #kinglines . If I wasn't there to see it with my own eyes I'm not sure if believe that this exists. I feel so lucky to get to explore and climb in such amazing spots. @prana @redbull @sanukfootwear @evolvusa @sterlingrope @climbskinspain @metoliusclimbing @walltopia 3mon
