Mallorca is the ultimate deep water soloing spot. The potential for new rock ledges and routes seems almost unfathomable. Last summer, Spaniard by choice Chris Sharma set out expedition-style to explore new spots. Now there's the video for his kayak adventure.
Chris Sharma has the development of Deep Water Soloing with first ascents like Es Pontas or Alasha significantly advanced. His eye for aesthetic kinglines and his technical ability to climb them are second to none. The 41-year-old has retained his unbridled desire for discovery to this day, as the short film about his DWS kayak expedition on the coast of Mallorca impressively shows.
