Rock Climbing

Alex Megos

Erlangen, Germany

At 23 years of age Alex is one of the most influential and accomplished rock climbers of his generation. With 20 sport climbing ascents of 9a/5.14d or harder including the first ascent of Fight Club, one of the few 9b/5.15bs in existence, Alex continues the redefine the limits as to what is possible in the vertical world. His ascents don't stop at the end of a rope, Alex has established or repeated boulder problems up to 8C+/V16 and dominates in most indoor climbing comps. With unending psych and the ability to climb hard multi-pitch alpine routes or 10 foot boulders, Alex is helping to redefine the definition of a modern day climber.

"I'm very pragmatic, I do things just if they make sense to me. I was sceptical when people told me that FL chalk is better. I doubt everything first before the difference is proven. So I did a test on the same boulders, the same day with different types of chalk. I got convinced. FrictionLabs chalk really does make a difference." Photo: Becoming 9a+/5.15a by Chris Hanke
