Alexander Megos, the 19 year old German who made the world's first 9a onsight, has struck again, making the quickest ever repeat of La Rambla, 9a+, at Siurana, Spain.
Strengthened by his recent success, and what must be excellent beta from his friend Felix Neumärker, Alex first tried to flash the route. Apparently he came very close, falling just a couple of moves from the top! Then, he swiftly dispatched it on his next try...
This was Alexander's first of the grade, but I would be very surprised if it were the last.

Maybe it's about time he tried something hard...
I think it's also about time we had a little chat with the man. Watch this space.
