First ascent of Flight Club- Alex Megos

Alex Megos and his endless amount of yellow Patagonia T-shirts seals a first ascent on “Fight Club”, the first 5.15b established in Canada and second 5.15b in all South and North America. On August 21, 2017 he makes the first ascent up a 25 to 30 meter face of gray stone. The route consists of bouldery moves on small crimps. You can watch the send here and read more about it on Rock and Ice Climbing Magazine.

Currently, Alex Megos is continuing his bad-assadry in Rocklands, Africa. I hope that he continues to crush stone for all of us to see! What I find more fascinating about this video is the sheer determination that radiates off of Alex and the send. Its inspiring to watch and gets me psyched to hit the campus board and train hard.
