Judging by his insta stories it looks like Alex may be trying something at the La Capella sector in Siurana, I wonder whether he's putting some time into the hard stuff Bosi did over winter?

Thought I’d share this YouTube of Megos doing King Capella.

Another repeat at the La Capella sector with the second ascent of Bosi's La Furia de Jabali.

That looked insanely hard. I knew well had done a few FAs last year, but pretty cool to see them getting the attention of the likes of Megos  :punk:

Not to mention chalking & shaking out on what appears to be a mono undercut around 1:30

Long interview with Alex Megos on Actiontalk TV. Skip to the second part where they talk about downgrading of Bibliography, Will Bosi's routes in Siurana, the future of human performance on rock and the situation in Ukraine.

Alex Megos has done the first ascent of the old Sharma project "Ratstaman Vibrations" at the grade of 9b. Rat staman because it is on Face de Rat, apparently.

Here is Charles Albert and Seb Bouin trying it

He only says "in the 9b range" on his IG post:

I'd take that as an approximation, but I guess it could be translated as in the 9b grade?

I guess it could mean its most likely 9b but could be 9a+ or 9b+ if his gradeometer is off. Seb looks to find it hard in the vid!

As usual, my rôle is to distort facts posted on Instagram.
