Alex Megos Is Back At It With Hard New Climb

After attempting a steep project in spring, he returned and climbed it at 5.15b

Top German climber Alex Megos has made the first ascent of Full Journey at Margalef in Spain, which he’s graded 5.15b. In 2018, Megos made history at the crag when he made the first ascent of Perfecto Mundo 5.15c.

“The first part is pure power-endurance on mostly two finger pockets with a hard mono move in the middle,” said Megos on Instagram. “The second part is a boulder with a rather violent dead point move to a mono and a few more hard moves after.”

In spring, Tom Bolger bolted the mega line and climbed the first 18 metres to a good rest at 5.15a. Megos had climbed the upper 17 metres at 5.14d in April, so returned this month to attempt the link. After 12 goes he completed a no-fall ascent at 5.15b.

Megos also visited a new wall where he climbed Off the Tractor 5.14b, Patan El Villano 5.14b and made the first ascent of Patata el Villan 5.14c in just a few burns. In August, Megos climbed a new 5.15b in France, read about it here.
