Megos at The Schoolroom
The young talent on the most prestigious board on the planet08 June 2016
On the famous climbing forum UKBouldering, it's said that "Boards are the past, present and future of climbing". While the climbing world is interested only in knowing with math-like precision and sureness whether Hubble is 8c+ or 9a, a matter on which only the repetitors could give an opinion, we like to remind Alex Megos' first visit at the new Schoolroom, the infamous board that forged the strongest generations ever, from Ben and Jerry onwards.
As it shows, if there was someone capable of repeating Hubble this was surely Alex. The best image, perhaps, is the last frame, with Ben and Alex's smiles that make us think that those who keep debating whether grades without compreheding their subjectivity, will never, never have real fun in climbing, differently from those who climb lots and debate little.
