Alex Megos is on his annual pilgrimage to Greece and the Leonidio climbing festival. Although his preparation involved being sick for ten days, he seems to be his usual self, repeating and putting up a few routes in the 8c to 8c+ range every day, normally in a couple of attempts.

For example, has managed to flash Capricorn, one of the hardest routes in the area. Put up as a 9a "the common sense now is 8c+", according to Alex, who agrees with that grade.

Alex has previously onsighted two 9a's, Estado critico and TCT
