Sport climbing and bouldering visionary, Chris Sharma.Two living legends of rock climbing have joined forces to establish a futuristic big-wall route.

Stefan Glowacz, the German stalwart whose resume includes competition wins from the late 1980’s and early 1990’s to big-wall first ascents in remote corners of the world, has teamed up with Chris Sharma, the California prodigy turned sport-climbing and bouldering visionary.

The only clues are that the route is “big, unique and has never been done before and will likely never be done again.”
