Alexander Megos managed with „Intermezzo XY gelöst“ in the Austrian climbing crag Plombergstein near Salzburg his first flash ascent of a 9a route. Yes, right. Alex has already onsighted “Estado Critico” in Siurana and „TCT“ in Gravere. two 9a routes. A flash ascent of a 9a route was still missing. He flashed „Underground“ in Massone in northern Italy, but this is now graded with 8c+ or 8c+/ 9a.

„Super excited this one worked out! Really enjoying the time outside lately. Short trip to Austria came to an end with a great last day at Plombergstein near Salzburg. Did my first ever 9a flash! (If you don’t count „Underground“ 8c+/9a in Arco). Video of the uncut send is coming soon on my YouTube channel! Thank you @flo_scheimpflug @ebner_tobi @jakob.kronberger and Roli for the great day! I’ll be back soon.“
