I would love to one day tackle a Chris Sharma route. The guy is a master bolter, so he must have some really high quality routes that aren't 5.15. Anyone got any beta?

I trust there will be no fondling of the nuts attached to the bolts drilled by Sharma?

OP said why in his original post. "becasue hes a master bolter and probably puts up really high quality routes, and theres sure to be some that arent only for dudes who climb 5.15."

master bolter?

Can someone please edit Sharma's wikipedia page to read, "Chris Omprakash Sharma (born April 23, 1981 in Santa Cruz, California) is an American master bolter and rock climber."

Thanks for the encouragement everyone! Your egos seem to be very well established. I guess all of you are to good to be climbing on any of Chris's routes. I think we could rename mountainproject, ego project, shit talk my face off project, or I'm the coolest rock climber on the planet project. Happy climbing douchebags.

I might be wrong about this but I believe Chris Sharma bolted a route in Wild Iris, which is a crag near Lander WY. Todd Skinner also bolted a bunch of sport routes there that are considered classic exercises in very difficult climbing. They might not be the easiest routes these fine climbers ever bolted but they would be shorter compared to the routes in Spain and might be a bit more doable for that reason. Sorry everyone else decided to not be so helpful.

Yeah, I think it's an interesting question. Someone's gotta know the answer, right?!

Ben, sorry man. I was jking. Just the thought of Sharma being known most for his bolting mastery was making me chuckle (which I know isn't what you're saying, but all the same).

I'm sure it's far from inclusive, but here's his list of attributed routes on Mountain Project his lists on MP.

Don't forget that just because Sharma was the FA doesn't necessarily mean he bolted the route (i.e. Randy Leavitt with Jumbo Love). The opposite holds true as well though!

So let's say you found this unicorn, Chris' only 5.8, and you climbed it but found it to be an utter piece of contrived shit. Would this somehow change your opinion of our only living superhero?

So if you are really skilled at bolting, that makes you a master bolter. What if you are really skilled on putting worms on hooks to catch fish with?

ha, the first .15b Sharma sent he dident even establish. Jumbo Love was established by Leavitt, not Sharma. I have no idea of his bolting abilitys, but I do know a number of his test piece routes arnt really his—or at least he dident bolt them.

Why not go on an internet-based quest to contact him and find out? Email Evolv or something?
