  • Climbing...
    Climbing... ... is the activity of using one's hands and feet (or indeed any other part of the body) to ascend a steep object. Climbing might be the oldest form of locomotion of Human Beings since it stems from the arboreal locomotion of our ancestors in the trees. Many of the same principles may be applied to climbing on rock or artificial structures. Nowadays it is done both for recreation (to reach an inaccessible place, or for its own enjoyment), as a sport (see the "competition" section of this site) or as part of activities such as maintenance of a structure. Here we deal with Sport Climbing in which the climber uses quickdraws to clip onto permanent bolts in the rock, and thus clips the rope into each quickdraw as she or he climbs up and with the so called Traditional or Clean climbing in which bolts, nuts, hexes and camming devices are employed and taken from the rock after the ascent (hence "clean"). You find most of the other sub- categories of climbing in the corresponding section of this site.

über Sharma

geschrieben von 

 

Als ich im Sommer 1997 nach Salt Lake City kam, war ich ziemlich unfit und müde. Kaum angekommen musste ich mir direkt Mike Calls frisch erschienenes Fast Twitch angucken und sah zum ersten Mal Chris Sharma klettern. Am Ende des Videos rätseln Dale Goddard und Boone Speed darüber was Chris' Kletterstil wohl zu bedeuten habe. Besonders die Begehung von Just do It!, der Route an der Dale zerbrochen war, wirkte irritierend lässig.
Just do it! ist die ersten 15m nicht schwieriger als acht. Die Zügen sehen bei Chris alle schwierig aus. Dann kommt eine ganz nickelige Stelle, die sieht auch schwierig aus, aber nicht schlimmer als die leichte Kletterei davor. Dann zieht er am Ruhepunkt seine Mütze aus und klettert die folgende X+ Seillänge einfach so durch, immer am Limit, aber unfassbar unbeeindruckt.
"Wenn man Just do It! so klettern kann, kann man offensichlich noch ganz andere Sachen klettern!" sagt Dale mit belegter Stimme.  Boone erinnert Chris an "Monkeys in a Zoo" und stellt fest: "Chis Sharma is clipping chains, that's all that counts!"

 

 

Chris Sharma hat seinen Stil  "Climbing in the Nineties" genannt.

Von Tritten wegspringen anstatt nur darauf zu stehen. Nur ein Bein steht, das andere pendelt mindestens oder gibt oft sogar einen kleinen Impuls der die Bewegung erleichtert. Entgegen der damals geltenden "Lehrmeinung" ist seine Hüfte oft recht weit von der Wand weg. Schnell. Nie zurückschauen, immer nach vorne. Und sich nie durchs Klettern frustrieren lassen. Natürlich profitiert er von brutal starken Fingern, ohne die er wahrscheinlich nicht das Selbstbewusstsein hätte so zu klettern. Nur Kletter-Analphabeten würden dies aber für das einzige Geheimniss von Chris' Kletterfähigkeit halten

Das Ganze war ausgesprochen inspirierend! Meine Kletterpartner wies ich an, sofort kein Seil mehr auszugeben, falls ich nicht mehr "Sharmaesque" klettern sollte. Man macht das oben Genannte und versuche ausserdem jeden Zug so leicht und schnell wie möglich zu machen. Nicht statisch zuschrauben, wenn man auch hinwippen kann. Kann ich fürs onsight Klettern nur sehr empfehlen! Schärft die Sinne. Man fühlt sich jung und unzerstörbar.

Inzwischen klettert Chris noch viel besser, was wahrscheinlich auf den leistungsstärkendem Effekt des "soulboulderns" zurückzuführen ist. Einer artistischen Sequenz an einem Baum wendet er dabei so viel Aufmerksamkeit zu wie den Ausdauerkloppern beim Psicobloc. Oft geht er nach Sonnenuntergang noch in den steilen 20m Klippen spazieren. Er scheint das etwas planlos wirkende Herumgehänge dort sehr zu geniessen. Ist es schliesslich stockdunkel, versucht er noch einen hoffnungslosen Doubledyno. Er fällt, taucht auf und strahlt über das ganze Gesicht. Klettern ist für Chris angenehm verbrachte Zeit, Erfolg ist nur ein Detail.  Es ist nicht immer pures Gold was er so klettert, es gibt durchaus andere Boulderer die das ein oder andere besser können. Trotzdem kann man Chris guten Gewissens für den besten Kletterer halten. Wenn man innerhalb  eines Monats die härteste Sportklettertour erstbegangen und einen Boulderweltcup mühelos gewonnen hat, dann hat das schon Klasse. Apropos Boulder-Wettbewerbe, bis letztes Jahr hat Chris so ungefähr jeden gewonnen in dem er war. Überhaupt kann er sehr gut mit Druck umgehen. Die Stimmung in einer Filmcrew, die über Monate komplett nach Ceüse hochgelatscht und Realization hochgejümert ist und jeden Tag vergeblich auf die Begehung des Stars wartet, darf man sich nicht zu fröhlich vorstellen. Beim Psicobloc ist das Filmen noch schwieriger, weil man da nix faken kann. Da hilft es, wenn der Kletterer abgebrüht, ja fast möchte ich sagen "professionell" ist. Und das ist Chris auf jeden Fall.

 Im Moment versucht er eine futuristische Linie durch einen im Mittelmeer stehen Felsbogen.

Josh Lowell, der Macher der Dosages, ist auf Mallorca um ihn zu filmen. Aber nur für 2 Wochen, dann muss Josh zurück nach New York. Zwei Wochen um die Tour zu klettern und das Ganze drumherum zu filmen, dass ist schon stressig. Wenn es aber klappt, dann haben die beiden wieder eine staunenswerte "Dose" gemacht.
Denn das das Beste an Chris ist, wie inspirierend er auf Kletterer wirkt. Ich zum Beispiel hab ihm unter Anderem meine beste onsight Serie zu verdanken!
