“I’m going to send it today”

PlanetMountain caught up with Alex Megos after his one day ascent1 of Biographie (5.15a):

I warmed up by checking out the moves on Biographie, this took circa 1 hour. Then I started to make the attempts, and had circa 30 – 40 minutes rest between each go. Conditions were very good and my first feeling was: I’m going to send it today.

His thoughts on why he didn’t try to flash or onsight the route are interesting to read as well.

  1.  I’ve seen a lot of people refer to him having done it in three attempts, but I think it was actually four.  But who’s counting, right?
