Chris Sharma in Le Blond Project at Oliana
The video of America climber Chris Sharma attempting his Le Blond Project at Oliana, named after Patrick Edlinger.
Chris Sharma's persistent vision for the absolute extreme is what has transformed Oliana into one of the world’s most important high-end crags, and even while he was working on La Dura Dura the American kept his eyes open for possible new lines. Just to the right lies a heinous set of crimps that may well prove even harder, possibly even 9c. Sharma happened to bolt the line the day French sport climbing pioneer and legend Patrick Edlinger passed away, hence the Le Blond nickname in his honour.
