La Capella 9b (a+) by Alex Megos

Wednesday, 15 December

Alex Megos reports on Insta that he has done the FA of Kulebras gemelas 9a in Margalef and repeated La Capella 9b (a+) in Siurana. "This one felt very hard to me if I'm honest. I had a lot of trouble with this undercling move on the picture and fell there quite a few days." (c) Esteban Lahoz

Megos also comments on his Insta that there is some confusion about the grades in the La Capella sector and he will later share his thoughts. Megos did not give La Capella a grade. Previously both he and Jakob Schubert have recently suggested personal downgrades there.
