After Japan, Alex Megos is now in Australia for the next couple of months. He has only been there for a few days, but has already made quite a few hard repeats.

Straight from the airport, he went to Crumbly, where he flashed Abacus, ~8A+, and Mushi Brain, ~8A, and made a rare ascent of Genesis, ~8B.

The next day, now in the Blue Mountains, he flashed Lee Cossey's Tiger cat, ~8c. This made him happy as he actually hadn't flashed many 8c routes before. Remember his hardest onsight before Estado critico, 9a, was an 8b+...

Then he climbed two more 8c's, Sitting bull and Beta vinyl, before switching back to bouldering again.

At Sunny side in Sydney, he did Combat Wombat, ~8A, One of a kind, ~8B, and then finished off the day with an ascent of Tom Farrell's Double demerit, ~8B+. All in one session.

Did I hear rest day?
No? Didn't think so...
