Alex Megos successful in Brione

Alexander Megos bouldered numerous difficult boulders in the Ticino area of ​​Brione within two days. Including Casavino (8b +).

After participating in the Bouldering World Cup in Meiringen, the German professional climber Alexander Megos went straight to Ticino, more precisely to Brione. "I've never climbed in Brione and I'm really happy," said Alex to LACRUX before the trip to Ticino.

Alex actually wanted to have a more relaxed day after the World Cup. But that led to the ascent of the 8b-Boulder Supertussy. On the second day, he definitely took off.

That was one of my best days in bouldering.

Alexander Megos.

After climbing Entwash (8a), he quickly climbed the Casavino (8b +) and General Disarray (8b) boulders. On the same day he also cracked Marilyn Monroe (8a, flash) and Red (8a, flash). If that's the ticklist of just two days, what does Alex present to us at the end of his week-long stay?
