Chris Sharma and His FA Traverse of “Super Blood Wolf Moon”

It goes sideways and is never more than a few feet off the ground, but Sharma says this thing equates to more or less a 5.14d route!

Writes Sharma, “Great day out in Cova de l’Ocell. Most days you come up empty handed so it’s important to enjoy the fleeting moments when things come together.

“I was able to finish off this beautiful and sustained traverse I’ve been working in the last couple weeks. About 30 moves and if I had to put a grade on it I’d say it’s comparable to a 9a [5.14d] route. I know there is a traverse rating system but no idea how it works. Anyone know what this could be? Anyways great to get out in nature and escape the vortex. So important for my sanity to get outside and touch rock!”
