[VIDEO] Alex Megos: the Art of Redpoint following master Wolfgang Gullich
The German Champion03 October 2019
If on-sight climbing is the "queen" of climbing styles, the redpoint is the mass that supports it. Climbing would not have been the same if one had only ever climbed on the first attempt, without introducing the concept of climbing the pitches by trying them over and over again, until the complete free ascent.
This conceptual leap is one of the fundamental steps of this sport and one of its greatest precursors, also for the training techniques had developed, was the German Wolfgang Gullich. Few people in the world have had the same charisma and the same influence, shaping and directing the history of climbing.
And to collect this legacy was Alexander Megos, a prodigal boy who first climbed a 9ta on sight and who today is one of the strongest climbers in the world, one of the very few who climbed up to 9b+. Alex is a machine, capable of training more than anyone else and with recovery times close to a few hours, practically just the time to sleep at night.
And it is he who in this trailer introduces what will surely be a great video, the Art of the Redpoint
