Weekend Whipper: Chris Sharma’s 100-foot Pont d’Arc Deep Water Solo

By Rock and Ice | July 21st, 2017

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.
