v.— «Conquering Es Pontas entailed deep-water soloing, a climbing style fairly new to Sharma in which he would use no rope and rely on the water below to break his falls. Near the top of the climb was a 7-foot blank stretch, which he would have to jump, or dyno in climbing lingo, to complete the climb.» —“Film follows climber Chris Sharma’s search for difficult, picturesque ‘king lines’” by Julie Jag Santa Cruz Sentinel (California) Aug. 30, 2007.
