2nd ascent of Dreamcatcher by McColl

Exactly, to the day actually, 4 years after the FA, Sean McColl has made the coveted 2nd ascent of Chris Sharma's Dreamcatcher, 9a, at Squamish, BC. "Although many strong climbers over the past 4 years including Sonnie Trotter, Ethan Pringle and Paul Robinson have tried the route, none have been able to make the second ascent. Before today, the route was unrepeated. I am also the first Canadian to climb an established 5.14d. ".
Full story, describing the ascent in detail, on Sean's blog.
