Alexander Megos has made a very quick repeat of Markus Bock's Pantera, 9a, at Schneiderloch, Frankenjura.
Alexander certainly doesn't waste any time now that he's on a roll. Only a few days after his repeat of Corona, 9a+, he made a one day ascent of its neighbour Pantera. In fact, he did the route on his first redpoint attempt after having worked through the moves a couple of times.
I know I keep repeating myself, but this guy needs to get off the kindergarten stuff and get on something proper hard...
But then again, he has already made short work of the two hardest routes in the area, one of which he had to make the first ascent of himself, so... Flatanger perhaps?
