Alex Megos has made the fourth ascent of Chris Sharma's Dreamcatcher, 9a, at Squamish, Canada. Quite unexpectedly, he made the quickest ascent to date. He did it in a day.

This was the only route I knew when I came to Canada! And today I grabbed the 4th ascent of it in one day! "Dreamcatcher" 5.14d (9a)!!! Super stoked to have climbed this world class route! One of the best of all time!

The route was bolted by Sharma and Sonnie Trotter in 2005 and the first ascent was made in September that year. It has since been repeated by Sean McColl (2009) and Ben Harnden (2012).
