Chris Sharma made the first ascent of a 30 meter (nearly 100 feet) deep water solo line up Pont d’Arc in France this June—ground up. To test the
waters, so to speak, he took falls every five meters up the climb to ensure that he didn’t hit the bottom of the river. In the end, he took the plunge
from almost the highest point of the route. Here’s a teaser from his ascent, with a massive fall. Stay tuned for the full video.
