I really enjoyed this article, he talks about Chris Sharma and how he climbed a massive rock wall in Spain. Climbing in unclimbed wall is very hard, but climbing it without a harness is suicidal. Although he managed to pull it off without injuring himself which is just incredible. There are very few people in the world were able to that increases one of those people.
 
It talks about how he prepared for it and how it wasn't easy. Another thing is that no one else is done it before so it's pretty cool that he's the first one to do it. I am a big fan of rock climbing so I think it's cool what Chris accomplished and like he says, "So hard complex sequences with no rest!" This shows just how hard he trained and prepared himself physically and mentally. I think everyone should read this article weather there a fan of rock climbing or not and see the effort Chris needed to put in to successfully complete his climb.
