Only report I could find was:

"Further south in the Grampians, Alex managed the first ascent of the long-time project between Mr Joshua and Venom (which went by many working titles including the Enter the Dragon project),"

The Enter the Dragon project was done and kept the name. 5 star bin-dive is next to Feather Boa and gets a prize for worst route name on the wall! I suggest a rename by consensus!

Who got the FA on Enter the Dragon? theCrag has it listed as Alex Megos (possibly added by someone with the same info as above).

I thought Orange Desire had the worst name on the cliff? :P


Edit: Random internet search got me to Alex Megos wiki page of all places: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexander_Megos

Lists both Enter the Dragon and 5 Star Bin Dive as FAs.

Yeah the actual term is "Dumpster Diving" although it's more of a yank thing. I've never heard anyone talk about bin-diving.

Thanks Kp. Further right (starting up scud buster???) there's a line of pretty big holds that goes almost al the way to the 7th pillar ledge and the stops with just 2 horrible mono moves to the ledge....wonder if it was that one or something in between???

This is the description that Alex gave me of the route: 'The first pitch (till the first anchor) was a fairly new bolted line by Jai Critchley. It shares the start with "Feather Boa" and branches off to the right just before the overhang, where it continues for another approx. 10m to a first lower off (two bolts with biners). He decided to put the anchor there as the next bit of the wall till the big ledge (where Feather Boa ends) seemed really blank. My extension to that route climbs till that ledge. So it adds another 7m of hard climbing on thin crimps and pockets and a final jump to the ledge where it ends. The first pitch is about 28/29 and my extension makes it 34.'
