Having recently won the US Lead Championship Margo switched her attention to Oliana where she concentrated on Chris Sharma’s Papichulo. Commenting on IG after her ascent Margo said; ‘I am grateful to be back on Spanish lime stone, which suits my style in such a comfortable and familiar way. I feel so small against the magnitude of rock. It has been a wonderful experience climbing one of Oliana’s most beguiling routes, Papichulo 9a+.’
Margo’s partner, Alex Megos, was on belay duty for her successful ascent commented on his own IG feed; ‘It looked graceful and effortless as always. Good job.’
Previously, Margo had redpointed both La Rambla Extension, Siurana and Biographie, Céüse back in 2017.
