Samfaina 9a (+) by Alex Megos

20 April 2022

Alex Megos reports on Insta that he has done Chris Sharma's Samfaina in Margalef. Sharma called it 9a as also first repeater Ramon Julian Puigblanque did. Megos comments, "Last year @jorge.diazrullo repeated it and suggested an upgrade to 9a+. I'm with Jorge on that one. Definitely felt harder than the 9a's here." In total, the German has now done close to 100 routes 9a and harder and it is only Adam Ondra that has done more. (c) S. Tymchenko

What are your 2022 plans?
My plans for 2022 are trying to combine a few comps and some outdoor climbing. I'll do a few of the bouldering world cups and also a few of the lead world cups, but not the full season.

Last week, Megos competed in the Bouldering World Cup in Meiringen and was #16 after being #5 in the qualification. After he raised issue with there being photos of the boulder problems in isolation, consensus was reached among competitors and officials and no further photos were displayed.
