Climbing has been the driving force in Chris Sharma’s life for over 20 years now, from establishing North America’s first 8c+ at the age of 15, to putting up the world’s first 9a+. Chris has bolted and sent what remains one of the world’s toughest problem, La Dura Dura (9b+), and has been instrumental in advancing the sport of climbing and guiding it in a positive direction. Not just a sponsored athlete, Chris recently became somewhat of an entrepreneur, opening his own bouldering gym in Barcelona. Stepping out of his comfort zone, he's trying to create something unique and give back to the sport he loves. Chris has been a guiding force in the development of Santa Linya climbing over the past 10 years, now considered one of the world’s toughest sport climbing destinations. In this episode of Epic Climber, Sasha, Edu and Adam watch on as Chris goes through the process of putting up a brand new route, without even knowing if it’s technically possible.

In the second series of Epic Climber, we invite four of the world's best climbers (Adam Ondra, Chris Sharma, Sasha DiGiulian and Edu Marin) to Spain, where each of them will pick a route to try over the course of the trip. Edu will try his hand at 9a+ Seleccion Anal, with Adam attempting the world's first 9a+ flash on the same, as well as attempting a repeat of Chris' 9b Stoking The Fire. Chris tries to open a brand new route, with Sasha returning to an old project of hers, 8c Digital System. Everyone's been busy with their lives, but now is the perfect opportunity to catch up with old friends and enjoy a weekend in Spain. We follow the trip through each climbers perspective, exploring what it takes to be one of the world's greatest climbers.
