The strong Spaniard Jorge Diaz-Rullo recently turned his back on his mega-project Café Colombia in Margalef - after an incredible 120 days of planning. The change of scene seems to have been good for the 23-year-old: in Santa Linya he managed the onsight inspections of La Fabelita (8c) and Rollito Sharma (8b +).
The strong climber Jorge Díaz-Rullo brings Spain another sport climbing route with the highest level of difficulty. In Margalef he climbs his long-term project Mejorando la Samfaina and proposes grade 9b+ for his first ascent.
Alexander Megos stayed in the Spanish climbing Mecca Margalef for three weeks in autumn and scored an incredible 14 climbing routes between 8c and 9b. The highlight of his trip was the first ascent of the line The Full Journey (9b) drilled by Tom Bolger. Now there's the video for it.
At the end of July, Alexander Megos made the first ascent of Ratstaman Vibrations (9b). Now there's the video for it. Since this success in Ceüse, the German professional climber has been unstoppable. In October in Margalef he scored 14 routes between 8c and 9b within three weeks.
Alex Megos continues on his successful course in Spain and scores routes like Gancho Perfecto (9a/+) and Red Ram (9a+).
Alex Megos manages the first ascent of The Full Journey (9b) in the Spanish climbing mecca of Margalef. The day before, within a few hours, he landed Off the Tractor (8c), Patan el villano (8c, flash) and Patatas el villano (8c +, FA).
Several climbers are sounding the alarm: Famous routes such as Victimas Perez (9a) or Gancho Perfecto (9a+) have been chipped in the Finestra Wall in the world-famous Spanish climbing area Margalef. Unknowns have increased several holds and filed down aggressive edges.
The German professional climber Alexander Megos is in a high frenzy and climbs another 9a route in the Spanish climbing area Margalef. Kulebras Gemelas is almost certainly a first ascent.
