Ethan Pringle On Jumbo Love (5.15b/9b)
Ethan Pringle has been putting some serious effort into Jumbo Love recently. That's the 5.15b "king line" bolted by Randy Levitt and first climbed by Chris Sharma in 2008. Since Sharma's send, no one else has climbed the route, which tracks for 250 feet up the center of the severely overhanging 3rd tier of an area known as Mt. Clark, on the Nevada-California border. Pringle is no stranger to Mt. Clark or to Jumbo Love -- he worked the line with Sharma back in 2007. Now, he's back, and dedicated to sending one of the world's most epic sport climbs.
