With the face of a cherub, the body of a rock god, and the tendons of a titan, Alex Megos is one of the strongest freaks of nature to grace the cliffs in recent memory.
ROTPUNKT, a new film from Patagonia pays, captures Megos the phenom. Insofar as this promises to be damn good climbing porn, I’m quite excited to see this. This trailer also alludes to the fact that it attempts to draw a lineage from Wolfgang Gullich to Megos, which, aside from their Teutonic heritage, I’m not so convinced by at first blush, but I’ll reserve my judgements for when I actually see the film.
Anyway, no matter what it’s great that there’s a film about Alex Megos called the “Art of the Redpoint.” Has Megos ever redpointed a route that has taken him more than a few tries? Maybe this will be the moral of the story: the real art of redpointing is to simply never trying a route that takes you more than a weekend. …
