Chris Sharma Talks La Dura Dura 5.15c
It was so good to finally send La Dura Dura!
It’s the culmination of so many years of hard work and searching.
When I originally bolted the line 4/5 years ago I thought it would be something for future generations and that it was impossible for me, so it was especially rewarding to realize that it was in fact within my ability and then to finally bring it into reality.
It was an amazing exchange of motivation between Adam Ondra and myself. Working on this route together was a very special and brought out the best in both of us. Adam’s hunger to push the limits brought a fresh vision to the line and gave me the push I needed to go that extra step further in my own personal progression in climbing. Its cool how we both brought different things to the table, I had the vision for the route and Adam had the motivation. When we work to together with a bit of friendly competition amazing things can happen !!!
A huge shout out of gratitude to everyone who has supported me over the years in my pursuit of this elusive goal! This is for you!!!
