First 5.14d In Australia By Alex Megos

Great report with pictures from Simon Carter detailing how visiting climber Alex Megos ushered in Australia’s first 5.14d with his FA of Retired Extremely Dangerous in the Blue Mountains:

After taking the big whipper from the crux six or seven times Alex became frustrated. He lowered to the ground, pulled the rope, re-tied and immediately started climbing again. Somehow this tactic worked because this time he got through the crux — and it was a mighty fight to the end!
