He’s conquered some of the most technical climbing routes in the world, but German-born star of the rocks, Alexander Megos, shows absolutely no signs of slowing down. We caught up with Alex in-between training sessions, to reminisce on some tough routes and how it feels to defy gravity and expectations.
Remember the name Alexander Megos. It’s one that’s not going to be forgotten for a very long time. From climbing his local routes with his family at the climbing hotspot of Frankenjura, Germany, aged 6, Alex Megos has quickly skyrocketed through the climbing ranks to become a rock superstar within the modern climbing scene.
We caught up with Alex during a break from this rigorous training routine at Kendal Mountain Festival, where we discussed some of his incredible onsight achievements, the motivations behind every climb, and how we can all push the boundaries of what we think is possible on the rocks, if we have the right approach.
