FL Pro Alex Megos Climbs 10 of Switzerland's Hardest Routes...in Six Days

Watch FL Pro Alex Megos fire some of the hardest routes in Swizzy.

FrictionLabs Pro Alex Megos is one of the most efficient rock climbers in the world. Not only that––he's also one of the strongest.

In just less than a week, with no rest between climbing days, Alex climbed 10 routes throughout Switzerland from 8b+ (5.14a) to 9a (5.14d). For most talented climbers, that can take years of work. For many more, it's a lifetime. Somehow, for the 24-year-old German powerhouse, it took six days.
