26 November 2012

Kletterszene reports about an extreme tick list for Alexander Megos in Red River Gorge including the flash of the Pure Imagination which recently did get down graded to 8c+. Based on the topo grades, the 19 year old also did another five 8c+, three of them second go, and onsighted three 8b+'s. Kletterzene also says that Alexander did his second 9a by The Fly in Rumney. Alexander has not commented any grades but to 8a, he previously said he does not think he has done 9a yet. Here are some quick comments from Alexander after the North Face Kalymnos festival where he actually proved to be the best climber in the competition. (c) Ignacio Sandoval Buron
