Two climbing legends, one new magic line: Glowacz and Sharma send joint project

Stefan Glowacz and Chris Sharma climbed a new magic line together in February 2014. The project was one of a kind, hard and incredibly unusal. They opened a 300 meter route through the roof of the Majlis al Jinn cave.

It lies in the eastern part of the Hadschar Mountains in Oman and is the second largest cave chamber in the world. The only way to get into the cave is by rapelling 160 meters into the bowels of the earth.

Glowacz and Sharma climbed from the floor of the Majlis al Jinn cave back into the light. No one has taken on this challenge before them.
