For the first decade of this century, Chris Sharma was virtually undisputed as the best rock climber on Earth. However, he’s not a big fan of social media and just quietly gets on with his climbing so we don’t hear as much from him as we should. We figured that it might be time to do something this and today we’re showing 2 videos of the great man himself.
First we’ve got Chris making the first ascent of Dreamcatcher, a stunning 9a+ in Squamish, Canada. It’s not often that you really get just how hard a route is, but this is one of those occasions, these holds are tiny.

Next, it’s a video of Chris climbing Groove Train, a scary looking 8c on the Taipan Wall in Australia. Check out this for a fall!
