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 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. Their plan is to climb a route that will challenge all of their combined skills. Specific details of the route is still being kept a secret. The only clues are that the route is big, unique and has never been done before and will likely never be done again.
