Alexander Megos has made the 3rd ascent, after Markus Bock and Adam Ondra, of The man that follows Hell, ~9a+, at Grüne Hölle, Frankenjura.
Hell yeah! Today I followed the "man that follows hell"(9a+)!!! Took me 1,5h to get in there... and it was pretty hot too... Glad it just took me 5 attempts to pass the gateway to hell :)
This is the 5th 9th grade route Alex makes quick work of in the last month.

He also made a 4th go ascent of Manuel Brunn's Kawaschuwu, ~8c+, which according to Alex could as well be 9a.
Working his way through the hard routes in Frankenjura looks like a very deliberate plan of Alex':
Jep, everything is part of the plan. The plan of getting stronger ;)
