Germany vs. Great Britain - Where was the first 9a climbed in the world?

The latest episode of Actiontalk TV and LACRUX's BETA program is dedicated to historical climbing routes such as Action Directe, Hubble and Akira. In exclusive interviews with the German climbing professional Alex Megos and the controversial Frenchman Fred Rouhling, we investigate the question of whether climbing history needs to be rewritten and what about the confused history of the 9b route Akira.

The BETA news show is presented by Bächli Bergsport and Mammut

As part of the fifth issue of BETA, we also have brief news about the bouldering blocks, the European Championship and show (with good reason) unpublished footage of our shooting. And we are giving away a set of Friends by on YouTube Wild Country.
