Alexander's unbelievable ascent speed in Leonidio

Alexander Megos stayed until yesterday in Greece, where he participated in the Leonidio Climbing Festival. As befits the German powerhouse, he presents a handsome ticklist.

Our titles will soon be on every trip from Alexander Megos. the same: "Incredible ticklist", "Row by row of hard routes climbed" and so on. We're sorry, but there's no other way to express what Alex does.

Typical Alex Megos Ticklist

On Thursday began the Leonidio Climbing Festival. Leonidio has developed into the new hotspot of Greece in recent years. Already for the second time the region invited to the Climbing Festival, which is very interesting for PR. Because big names like Alex and their respective inspections provide reports like these. But let's take a look at Alex's ticklist.

8c, 8c + and so on

On his second day in Leonidio, Alex briefly climbed 8c / +. On the third day followed the first ascent of Capricorn (8c +) and the tour of the route Pantysgawn (8c). Without a break followed on the fourth day two first ascents, then on the fifth day in sector Nifada the first repetition of Bat petting (8c +, first ascent by Cédric Lachat) and the repetition of Rainbow Warrior (8c, first ascent by Angy Eiter> See also the histological inspection of an 9b by Angy). Slowly but surely it is getting boring, because we have to add that on the sixth day in the Kamáres sector Alex quickly got himself a first ascent of an 8c route. He worked on the route beta together with Klemen Becan. The Italian Stefano Ghisolfi commented on the last ascent and evaluation of Alex with a wink as follows: "I give it at least 8c + / 9a, without trying, just because I know you".
