This is how Alexander Megos climbs The Full Journey (9b) | Video

Alexander Megos stayed in the Spanish climbing Mecca Margalef for three weeks in autumn and scored an incredible 14 climbing routes between 8c and 9b. The highlight of his trip was the first ascent of the line The Full Journey (9b) drilled by Tom Bolger. Now there's the video for it.

Margalef is a climbing destination that Alexander Megos. probably remembered particularly well. No wonder the German professional climber spent one of his best and most successful climbing trips there in October.

In his latest video, the 29-year-old not only presents himself and his (well worth seeing) first ascent of The Full Journey (9b) takes center stage, but leaves the stage to other protagonists such as climbing Tom Bolger, who discovered and drilled the King-Line.
