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.”
