The video of Shawn Raboutou making the first ascent of Megatron, a 9A boulder problem at Eldorado Canyon, Colorado, USA.
After months of conjecture, word is officially out concerning Megatron, a long-standing project at Eldorado Canyon in Colorado, USA, finally sent by Shawn Raboutou earlier this year. Attempted by many, the problem adds a sitstart and 7-move intro into the 8B+ Tron, established by Daniel Woods in 2017. The result is a V17, 9A, and as such it represents one of the very hardest boulder problems in the world.
Earlier this year Raboutou established another problem of the the same grade, Alphane at Chironico in Switzerland and repeated by Aidan Roberts and William Bosi.
