Mega project by Chris Sharma

The Perfecto Mundo it is a major project by the American Chris Sharma. These days, the route is being visited by three of the best climbers in the world: Stefano Ghisolfi, Alex Megos and the opener (not yet climber) himself, Chris Sharma. The level of difficulty will probably be 9b +. The following words from Stefano Ghisolfi show how hard the route is: “Margalef has a lot of routes to offer, and Perfecto Mundo could be the hardest of all, that's why it is my choice. I already spent four days on it and still feel very very very hard. I know it could be not only a winter project, maybe a year project or even a life project (probably it will), but I feel ready for this challenge and I know I can be back home empty handed after all the winter on this route . I don't care, I will do it, it doesn't matter how long it will take. "We just say:" The race is on! "
