On 6th February 2013, Chris Sharma has managed to complete one of his long term projects in Spain’s Santa Linya cave. This new route at Santa Linya is called Stoking the Fire and has been reported by Chris as being a solid 5.15b.

The majority of this route was initially bolted by Czech climber, Tomas Mrazek, he bolted up to the jug. Chris stepped in and continued bolting the line straight up, after the jug it cuts left to finish on Mercenaris del Pasat (5.13c).

The full route still remains on Chris Sharma’s projects list and he estimates that it would add a 5.14d section above the 5.15b.
