Video gives inside look at Life of climber Chris Sharma

He screams like a ninja on overhanging limestone, pulling incredible 5.15 moves. He sweeps out a dusty swimming pool at his house in Spain. He gets philosophical more than once, then kayaks down a river and flips his boat. In a new video from Prana, “Chris Sharma: Intrinsic,” we get a peek inside the life of arguably the world’s best rock climber. Says Sharma about his day job of climbing obscure and increasingly impossible routes near the end, “One [route] has a little bit smaller holds than the other one, and, ya know, in the big picture it’s all just, like, meaningless, but in the moment it gives us purpose in our life.”
