Evan Hau Climbs Out Planet X With Recent 5.14+

Evan Hau has made the first repeat ascent of an Alex Megos route at Planet X in Cougar Creek in Canmore.

Iron Butterfly 5.14c/d was a long-time project at the steep wall until Megos sent it in 2016 during his month-long visit to the Canadian Rockies.

With the send, Hau has now climbed every route at Planet X, which includes his own new route Magician’s Apprentice 5.14a from 2017.

Other 5.14s at Planet X (meant to be pronounced Planet Ten but given the Roman numeral “X” for ten): The Prestige 5.14c, Kurrgo 5.14a and The Illusionist 5.14a.
