Sharmaster is a lizard king
It would seem Super Sharma didn’t want to rest at all after sending his Clark Mountain project Jumbo Love (5.15b). He decided to run on over to Maple Canyon and onsight some classics in the Pipe Dream cave. When I say classics I mean ridiculously hard climbs including a 13c, 13d/14a, 14a/b, and a 14b.
