You need to meet Chris Sharma! And why not? He is the most recognized, skilled, inviting and friendly figure in rock climbing. Chris’s life has allowed him countless experiences during his travels from one edge of the globe to the other and on Wednesday November 5th you can experience them with him as he recounts these moments LIVE at Rock/Creek’s Two North Shore location! Admission is free, tickets are available at any Rock/Creek location.
sharma-web-image-1.jpgSharma’s recognition comes not only from his groundbreaking ascents but also from being such a character and genuine athlete. Chris is involved with his community wherever he is, whether he’s in his new home in Spain or his old stomping grounds of Northern California.
Join Chris on November 5th as he shares recollections and photos from trips such as recent climbing expeditions off the Spanish island of Mallorca, where Corey Rich took iconic photographs of Sharma hanging precipitously over the ocean as blue waves crash against the shore below.
Chris started rock climbing at age 12 and by the time he reached 14 he won the Bouldering Nationals and completed Necessary Evil (14c). Also on Chris’ resume: his groundbreaking ascent of the Mandala, solidifying the first ascent of a 5.15 with Realization, the first ascent of Dreamcatcher, and the monumental send Pontas Arch!
Since the show is LIVE it will not only be better than any other show you have attended before but also different every time he gives it. This is not only the first Tour Chris has ever given in the South but also is exclusively presented by Evolv dealers. With this show, Chris is going to be showcasing his Sharma Signature Series, his personal line of shoes developed in coordination with Evolv Footwear. Rock/Creek and Evolv will also have a raffle for a free pair of Chris’ new Signature Series rock climbing shoes. Check out the Optimus Prime, Optimus Slipper, Pontas, and Pontas Lace-up.
So be sure to load up the van with all your climbing amigos and show up for a romping, stomping good time with Chris Sharma.
