Alex Megos in Buttermilks, CA - Up-Climbing

Alex Megos in Buttermilks, CA

It’s one of the most rappresentative boulder of Buttermilks (Bishop, CA), was opened like stand version (8a+) by Chris Sharma in 2000. Alex Megos, during a boulder-trip in USA, visited the famous area and quickly repeated Buttermilker (8b), Swarm (8b/+) and above all The Mandala sit. This one was an intuition of Tony Lamiche (video) that two years after Chris did the FA, graded it 8b+.
From Alex facebook page: "UNEXPECTED! Send the "Mandala Sitstart" V14 (Fb 8B+) yesterday in sunny and nice weather with about 25°C. Tried it 4 days ago very very briefly and did it today after an hour of trying. Went to Red Rocks yesterday in the evening and had a first short bouldering session taking down another V12 (Fb 8A+). Psyched for more bouldering, sport and trad over here before heading back to Bishop."
