Has Alex Megos just climbed 9C / 5.15d with Bibliographie?

German climbing wunderkid Alex Megos may have just become the 2nd climber to ascend at the magic grade of 9C after completing his project ‘Bibliographie’ at Ceuse.

The line, just to the right of Chris Sharma’s Biographie, is described as starting at 8c to a good rest, followed by a Font 8B boulder problem and finishing with a 9a+ route.

If the grade is fixed at 9C he will join Adam Ondra as the only climbers to climb at this grade. Alex has already provided worthy credentials, joining Adam Ondra and Chris Sharma to climb at 9B+, following the ascent of Chris Sharma’s project line, Perfecto Mundo.

The route was first bolted by Ethan Pringle back in 2009. Footage of Alex attempting the route can be found below in the Rotpunkt film.
