Alex Megos has onsighted his second 9a/5.14d with Stefano Ghisolfi’s TCT in Gravere, Italy, four years after he made the world’s first 9a onsight.
“OOPS I DID IT AGAIN!” Megos reports on Instagram. “When people ask if I can onsight 9a I would say ‘no’. I never felt at a level where onsighting 9a felt in reach. But [today] I started to realize that I might be able to get to that level!
“What a great day at Gravere where I after more than four years did my second 9a onsight! What a feeling!”

The final crux of “TCT” 9a! Steep, big moves on crimps, totally my style. And with a good portion of luck I got the sequence right and managed to do my second 9a onsight, more than 4 years after doing “Estado Critico”! @redbulladventure @redbullgermany @patagonia_climb @dmm_wales @tenayaclimbing @sterlingrope @entreprisesclimbing @cafekraft_nuernberg @vertical.life.climbing @frictionlabs Thanks for the video @claudiaghisolfi
