Chris Sharma is back and business! Watch his ascent of Joe Mama
(9a+/5.15a)—a new power-endurance testpiece in Oliana, Spain. Sharma made the second ascent of the route, equipped by Joe Kinder and first climbed by Slovenian climber Klemen Bečan, on October 12, 2016.

“Last week I managed to send Joe Mama 9a+ at Oliana, a route that had challenged me a lot last season,” Sharma writes in the video’s description.
“It’s been quite a year with so many new experiences. As we enter into Fall and the climbing season it feels so good to be back in the groove and finding
my flow on the rock! More to come very soon!”
