Alex Megos Climbs Bibliographie - f9c Video

© Patagonia

Back in August 2020, news spread around the world that Alex Megos had climbed his hardest route yet. He had spent 60 days working the project at Céüse, a considerable amount more than he needed for Perfecto Mundo (9b+) at Margalef. Eventually, Alex confirmed the grade at 9c, the second route in the world to have that grade attached.

Alex first attempted the route back in 2017 and became more focused as he realised the route's difficulty. He has described the style of the route as being similar to its neighbour, Chris Sharma's Biographie, a steep face where the pockets are so small you have to crimp them.

Watch the short film documenting Alex's ascent here:

It's been a successful 12 months for Alex and despite the Coronavirus pandemic, he has achieved both f9c and Olympic qualification. Read our interview with him here:

I enjoyed this but as it was a film purely about 1 single route i was a bit disappointed the final ascent skipped out the first section completely. Seemed an odd choice, assume they didn't have footage but then if he was setting off from the ground why not film it all?

And no I'm not questioning whether it was legit just a shame in my opinion.
