Alex Megos didn't start this climb expecting a wild sideways dyno at the crux, but after Tommy Caldwell snapped off the only usable holds on this sequence, that is exactly what he found. With Hazel Findlay having lead the pitch just below the roof, Alex is eager to get on the sharp end and find out if he can make it past the now outlandish crux. After coming painfully close on his first try, Alex knows that it is possible for him, but his impatience is almost his undoing as he tries again and again in quick succession. Hazel's suggestions of a longer rest fall on deaf ears as the German wunderkind can focus on nothing but his personal-battle with the seemingly stopper move.

It's so motivating to see the pros struggle with the same things as the weekend warriors. I also really enjoy hearing them speak about one another It's obvious through their encouragement and praise that they all hold each other in the highest regard. It's so rare for people at the pinnacle of their sport to be so friendly with one another. It's something that's unique to climbing and one of the reasons I was attracted to the sport in the first place. Love this series, keep it up!

I agree with Heidi, and I imagine she's got a wicked pair of lederhosen she's rockin' as she watches EC. I know I've got my crampons on.
