[VIDEO] Alex Megos on Bibliographie
The story behind the world 2nd 9c18 November 2020
In August 2020 Alex Megos climbed his first 9c, calling it Bibliographie.
Bibliographie: full film starts now. Written in black on a yellow background, these few letters open the video that tells the story behind the first 9c in Ceuse. Megos starts talking about some technical aspects of the route, bolted by Ethan Pringle back in 2009. In Alex's opinion, the first part of the route could be 8b+, then there is a 8a+ boulder problem and a 9a route, with some other moves. After it, Megos starts to talk about the process behind the first ascent. A lot of travels, a lot of attempts, a lot of trainings and competitions… There are so many things behind the first ascent of Bibliographie! As often happens, the mental battle is the biggest paft of the game and Alex talks about it without any fear. Absolutely recommended!
