Chris Sharma (41) sends La Reina Mora 9a

Chris Sharma reports on Insta that he has done La Reina Mora in Siurana. "As I battle it out on my main project “Sleeping Lion” these days, I’ve also enjoyed climbing on this iconic route nearby." (c) Riki Giancola

Sharma started to work on Sleeping Lion last autumn and Giancola says he is pretty close. The estimated grade is at least 9b. Here is an Insta video from last May. Amazingly, there are no routes within some 20 meters of either side of Sleeping Lion and it is located on the big wall opposite of La Rambla and La Reina Mora.
