L’étrange ivresse des lenteurs 9a+ by Alex Megos

Saturday, 5 September

Alex Megos reports on Insta that he has done the first repeat of Adam Ondra's L’étrange ivresse des lenteurs in Céüse. He did it in 5 or 6 tries over three days when he also was filming his recent 9c. "It felt hard for the grade to me so I went and tried “Biographie” a day later to compare and I personally think “L’étrange Ivresse” felt more like 9a+/b to me."

In total, the German has now done some 80 routes 9a to 9c. Last year, the 27-year-old qualified to the Olympics and he also got the silver in the Lead World Championship.
