Three 9a+ lines by Alex Megos

Thursday, 5 May

Alex Megos reports on Insta that he, beside doing his "nemesis" 9a, Victimas Perez, also has done three 9a+ routes. "One of the 9a+'s was the FA of "Carlota's Journey". It's a combination of Carlota (8c) into the top of a new line bolted by @tom_bolger. Crux is a deadpoint into a mono. Margalef at its finest👌🏼." In total, the German has now done some 100 routes 9a and harder which is second most in the world after Adam Ondra. (c) Esteban Lahoz

What were the other two 9a+ routes you did?
The first one was Samfaina and the third one was another combination. It's called Carlota la Colombiana.

Did you try any other harder lines that you plan to return for?
Always. 😂 But I didn't try anything harder very much. I focused on a few 9a and 9a+ (routes).

What is the next comp you plan to do?
The next comp is not decided yet. Innsbruck I'll do for sure though. Bouldering and Lead.
