Alexander Megos has repeated Markus Bock's Corona, 9a+, at Schneiderloch, Frankenjura.

Alexander's ascent was the third, after Bock (2006) and Adam Ondra (2009), and also his third of the grade after La Rambla original and his own Classified.

Corona is not very long, only ~18 meters but in typical Frankenjura fashion, very fingery and technical.

According to, he needed a total of three days and around 10 tries. He checked it out one hand a half years ago, worked the moves last Thursday and then redpointed it after one restday. It's rather obvious he is no where near his limit as, afterwards, he climbed the route again during a photo shoot.
