Chris Sharma Project, El Capitan

163483

Chris Sharma està formant equip amb Tommy Caldwell per intentar el famós projecte “Dawn Wall” a El Capitan, Yosemite. Caldwell, un dels millors escaladors en big wall ha estat intentant alliberar aquest projecte durant els últims 5 anys.

L’equip per aquesta temporada és Tommy Caldwell, Kevin Jorgeson, Jonathan Siegrist i Chris Sharma. Caldwell  ha estat intentant alliberar la via desde 2007, Jorgenson des de 2009 i Siegrist aquesta última temporada. Els 3 escaladors han aconseguit alliberar els primers 12 llargs, però els 3 més durs…una llarga travessa al mig de la paret encara no s’han fet.

Ara s’afegeix a l’equip C.Sharma…un equip d’estrelles. La via té 7 llargs de 8c+ i molts altres llargs durs a la part superior de la via que segueixen lleugerament la via de rescat per Mescalito, sería la via mes dura del món si finalment s’aconsegueix escalar. Esperem que el tancament del National Park s’acabi aviat i l’equip pugui començar a intentar alliberar la via.

Chris Sharma is set to join Tommy Caldwell on his attempts on the well known ‘Dawn Wall’ project on El Capitan. Caldwell, one of the best big wall climbers in the world, has been trying to free climb this line for the last five years.

The team for this season now stands as Tommy Caldwell, Kevin Jorgeson, Jonathan Siegrist and Chris Sharma. Caldwell has been attempting the line since 2007, Jorgeson joined him in 2009 and Siegrist joined them last season. The three men have free-climbed the first 12 pitches of the route, but the three hardest pitches, a long traverse smack in the middle of the wall, have stymied them so far.

Now with the addition of Chris Sharma, this really is an all star team. With seven pitches reportedly in the 8c+ bracket and many more hard pitches on top of that the Dawn Wall project, which vaguely follows the aid route Mescalito, would be the hardest big wall free route in the world if successfully climbed.

Hopefully the closure of the national parks in America will be short-lived and the team will be able to have a good autumn attempting the route.

In a report on Climbing.com, Kevin Jorgeson commented:

“Tommy and I have our calendars blacked out until Christmas, and weather permitting we will be there till then. I think J-Star and Sharma have some obligations in November that will cut their season a bit shorter.”

We’ve covered Tommy’s efforts on The Dawn Wall several times over the years on UKC, and earlier this year we published this excellent video:
