King Lines

Chris Sharma’s Search For The Planet’s Greatest Climbs

Groundbreaking producers Josh Lowell of Big UP Productions and Peter Mortimer of Sender Films have teamed up to create KING LINES, pushing climbing films to a new dimension (and winning an Emmy Award in the process). Filmed on location in Spain, France, California, Venezuela, Greece, Utah, and Mallorca, KING LINES captures Chris Sharma’s most outrageous ascents and visionary projects, and explores his fascinating lifestyle as a nomadic professional climber and global citizen. Dani Andrada, Dave Graham, Ethan Pringle, Melissa Lacasse, Jibe Tribout, and other outstanding climbers are also profiled.

Film highlights:

  • The first ascent of Es Pontas, a spectacular free-standing arch in the Mediterranean, and the hardest deep water solo in the world
  • Fantasy bouldering on top of the mystical tepuy mountains of South America
  • Sharma’s current project, Mutant Message, which will be the hardest sport route ever climbed
  • Plus: Multi-pitch madness in the Verdon Gorge; Searching for sea cliffs in Greece; Highball bouldering in Bishop; Big-wall trad climbing in Zion; Smoking the competition in Barcelona; and much more
