While in Japan for the North Face Cup—which he won—Alex Megos didn’t waste any time tackling some of the best boulder problems in Kanoto.
In a single day, Megos climbed Mutante (V11), Full Charge (V12), Open Up (V11), Syuu (V11) and, “as a cherry on top,” Megos wrote on Facebook, Orochi (V15).
Megos claimed the third ascent, of Orochi (V15), established by Dia Koyamada in 2006. Megos, who sent the problem in two hours, said it “felt maybe a little easier to me.”
WOW!!! What a day! Went out for bouldering with @stonerideryuji and climbed his problems “Mutante” V11, “Full Charge” V12, “Open Up” V11 and after that “Syuu” a one move V11 and as cherry on top!!!! the full line “Orochi” graded V15!!!
