The 9b ascents are pushing this year. Let someone say that hard Olympic training doesn’t good. After the Austrian Jakob Schubert, Alexander Megos was also send „La Capella“ 9b (9a+) in the Spanish climbing crag Siurana.
„This one felt very hard to me if I’m honest. I had a lot of trouble with this undercling move on the picture and fell there quite a few days.
Looks like there is a bit of confusion about the grades here at the Capella sector and I’ll also write a post to show how hard and how individual grading and difficulties of routes can be. No matter the grade though, it was fun and a good challenge. I can’t thank @jenya_kazbekova enough for the support and for going to this cold place with me so many times. Also big thanks to @esteban.ele.eme for the good times and all the great pictures of the last few weeks „
In the usual „Schubert manner“, Jakob downgraded the route by one grade. Alex doesn’t downgraded the route, but he is a bit of confused about the grades at the ‚Capella sector‘.
