Alexander Megos climbs Lucid Dreaming 8C at Bishop

German climber Alexander Megos has made the third ascent of Lucid Dreaming V15 / 8C at Bishop, USA.

Alexander Megos from Germany has clinched the third ascent of Lucid Dreaming, the superbly difficult highball on the famous Grandpa Peabody boulder at the Buttermilks close to Bishop, USA. Put up by America’s Paul Robinson in March 2010, this V15 / 8C problem was repeated for the first time by Daniel Woods in January 2014.
