Amazing U.S. Trip By Alex Megos

Much like Toru Nakajima, Alex Megos is an under the radar bone crusher that I have somehow failed to post about up to this point.  I actually saw Megos climbing in the flesh back in November in the Red River Gorge when I saw this unassuming kid I didn’t recognize walk up two .12d’s in a row as a warmup in the same way I might climb a 5.6.  In a word:  effortless.

Once I got home I recognized him as the kid who flashed Pure Imagination (5.14c) in the Red and repeated The Fly (5.14d) in Rumney.  His trip was far from over though, and DPM has the rundown on the rest of his time stateside that saw him climb a lifetime’s worth of hard routes and boulders.

    I would like to add he is the nicest kid you could hope to meet, I’m really inspired by such humility. I met him and saw him at the crag a few days while down at the Red.

      Agreed. He seemed very unassuming and “Brave & Humble” when I saw him.
