Rock Climbing Ambassador Alexander Megos

Alexander started climbing when he was 5 years old. He competed in his first competition as part of the Bavarian Sportclimbing Cup in 2006. Three years later he won his first of two European Youth Cup championships. Alexander believes climbing is the best sport possible, but he’s not planning on making it his profession. He also enjoys photography and travelling around the world.
