Alex Megos has made the first ascent of Fightclub at Canmore in Canada. He suggests 9b, which would make it the first of the grade in the country.

For Alex, it was the second of the grade after Chris Sharma's First round, first minute at Margalef which he climbed on New year's Eve last year. An educated guess says Alex' will name his next 9b Street fighter or something similar.

The first day in Canada 2 weeks ago Sonnie Trotter bolted this line in fear I wouldn't have enough projects to do. Now, 2 weeks later after working on it for 5 days and even taking rest days I finally got it!!! FA of "Fightclub" 5.15b (9b), the hardest route in Canada to date and my 2nd 9b!!!
