One to Follow: Alex Megos
Alex Megos is from Erlangen, Germany and started climbing at age 5 and has since added to the laundry list of accomplishments under his belt. He got his start competing in his first competition as part of the Bavarian Sportclimbing Cup in 2006. Just a few years later, he went on to win two European Youth Cup championships.
At only 23, Megos established Chile’s first 5.14d and named the route Pasito a Pasito which translate to “step by step.” While on a 10 day trip to Chile, Megos managed to take first place in The North Face Master de Boulder competition. Climbing Pasito a Pasito only took two days and Megos couldn’t have been more excited, ““Woooop!!! What a cool rock trip here in Chile to Valle de los Cóndores the past two days! After two days of work I managed to do the FA of Pasito a Pasito … Super excited!”
