Fightclub 5.15b

 Watch Alex Megos send Fight Club, Canada’s first 5.15. The hard route is found at Ravens Crag in Banff National Park. The first bolts on the steep prow were added in the early 1990s by Peter Arbic. When Megos visited Canada for his first time, he and Sonnie Trotter visited the still-project line and Trotter added bolts to the top to create a complete route.   After many days of projecting, Megos sent it at 5.15b. It was the longest time he had ever spent on a project and a number of top climbers seem interested in attempting it in the summer of 2017.
