Much more detailed quote on the other channel - sounds like he thinks it's one of his best ever achievements.
Given it took Megos 3 days and he (Megos) said climbing in the area suited his style it seems pretty likely that the grade is right.
Mind boggling stuff! Also interesting that one of the biggest challenges appears to be finding routes at this grade to try to flash, either he's already done/been on or they are too super complicated / tricky
Adam’s given a longer interview to Black Diamond, confirming the grade.
There's a good interview on Planet Mountain...
Super impressive. He's clearly in a league of his own.
