Chris Sharma in Yosemite and on Everything is Karate 5.14c/d
Chris Sharma is an American living in Barcelona, but a few times a year he gets back to his roots in California and goes to his old stomping and proving grounds like Yosemite and Bishop.
In this video we get an epic 2-for-1.
First Chris and his friend Tommy Caldwell, who have been climbing together around the world for over 20 years, met up in Yosemite and happened to have a free day together so they went out to work the late Dean Potter’s project on Leaning Tower. They sessioned, figured out a few sections, and left it for another day. But as Chris says:
“It’s a beautiful line.”
Then Chris went to Bishop on the Eastern side of the Sierra Nevadas where he repeated the line “Everything is Karate”, which was rated 5.14c/d by Ethan Pringle who first sent the line.
