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.
