Alex Megos discovers stunning crags in Südtirol / South Tyrol


Monday, 19 October

Advertorial: Alex Megos is without a doubt one of those climbers who never tire of looking for new challenges and who take every opportunity to put their skills to the test. Recently he visited South Tyrol – popular for hiking and alpine climbing, amazing ski resorts and delicious food – but not yet that well-known among the climbing elite for its potential for hard climbs. However, this could change soon: "There seems to be A LOT of rock here, which I haven't heard of before. Looking forward to being back here as soon as possible!”

Alex Megos and his crew visited several areas in the Landro valley, where rock after rock is lined up. Right next to family-friendly places you can find mighty overhangs. Located in the middle of the Dolomites, the combination of fantastic rock quality and stunning backdrops offers more than just attractive photo motives. A big advantage of this area is that you can climb here in autumn and spring, but also in the middle of summer. Thanks to the high altitude and often shady orientation, there are good conditions even in the warm season: “I'm sure I'll be back again next summer!”

Debate/Jens: In trad climbing you are not allowed to have the gear or quickdraws in place and it was also like this in the beginning of the sport climbing era. Some ten years ago, you still had to place the draws if you were going to claim an onsight. The devaluation of ethics have continued and now…
