Alex Megos has made the first ascent of Perfecto mundo, 9b+, at Margalef, Spain, thereby becoming the third person to climb this grade after Adam Ondra and Chris Sharma.
Yesterday, May 9, Sharma’s vision became reality, when Alex Megos climbed Perfecto Mundo, becoming the first climber other than Adam Ondra to make the first ascent of a 9b+ (5.15c). Megos told Rock and Ice via email, “It’s the hardest route I’ve done.”

For many of his 32 days on the route, Ghisolfi found himself sending through the mono, only to slip off the pinch. But today things worked out perfectly. He told Rock and Ice about the moment he latched the crux pinch, “It seemed unreal, when I grabbed the pinch I couldn’t believe it because I fell many times there.”
Interview with Stefano Ghisolfi after his repeat of Perfecto Mundo, the 9b+ at Margalef in Spain considered one of the most difficult sport climbs in the world. After Adam Ondra, Chris Sharma and Alexander Megos, the 25-year-old climber from Italy is now only the fourth climber to master these difficulties.
