Introduction

17mins, Director: Josh Lowell, USA, Subtitles: No

Chris Sharma remains the world’s greatest practitioner of deep water soloing — climbing ropeless above the sea. Ten years after his generation-defining ascent of a majestic arch, Chris returns to the Mediterranean island of Mallorca where he discovers a beautiful, sweeping wall with small holds running up its face. If he can link the moves and endure the numerous heart-stopping plunges into the sea, he will establish what may be the world’s hardest deep water solo climb.
