On a brief pit stop between assignments, Alex Megos has made the first ascent of. Der Barde besingt die Wunder des Tages yet another 9a in the Frankenjura, Germany.
This one is very short and powerful, even by Frankenjura standards as the crux is only three moves long “3 moves and two monos” with the definite crux being a jump around the lip from one of those monos.
I think it's about time some of Megos' 9a's get repeated, don't you?
Alex just left Stockholm Sweden where he did what he usually does, i.e onsighting the odd 8b, flashing 8b+ and making an ascent of an old school (read “hard”) 8B.
