In February 2017, Margo became the first female to climb a confirmed 9a+ with an ascent of La Rambla (extension) in Siurana, Spain. Later that year, in September, she made the first female repeat of Biographie 9a+ at Céüse, France - another Sharma testpiece. Margo recently won the US Lead National Championship and will be competing for a spot in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics this coming IFSC competition season.
Margo commented on Instagram:
I am fortunate to be in Oliana during the spring equinox and full moon, especially with a human so dear to my heart. 🌝 I am grateful to be back on Spanish lime stone, which suits my style in such a comfortable and familiar way. I feel so small against the magnitude of rock. It has been a wonderful experience climbing one of Oliana's most beguiling routes, Papichulo 9a+. Thank you @alexandermegos for your unwavering support and for catching every fall. Much gratitude @chris_sharma for yet another gem💎 @jan_novak_photography 🙏🏾 📸 @thenorthface @petzl_official @lasportivana @frictionlabs @stancesocks
