Chris Sharma: Above the Sea

17 mins


World-renowned climber Chris Sharma has a passion for dangling by his fingertips off limestone cliffs above the Mediterranean Sea. Deep water soloing on the Spanish island of Mallorca has seen Sharma through the death of his mother, a marriage and the birth of his daughter. But it can be dangerous: an errant wave could knock him from his perch or he could miss a handhold 60 feet above the waves. In Above the Sea, Sharma tests his limits attempting a first ascent of an impossible-seeming, orange-and-white-striped, overhanging wall, a route he names for his daughter, Alasha.
