Yep the kid is pretty strong. If there was ever a facial expression that made me want to give up climbing FOREVER it would be the one permanently painted on Alex Megos' face. Can you inject joy in to someones eyes manually? I think his sponsors should consider that. Has anyone actually checked he isn't just an AI climbing robot designed by the Chinese?

A bit harsh but I do know what you mean, he would be brilliant at poker I reckon =P

Reminds me of Kimi Raikonnen. "To move you need to overcome friction" - what a load of rubbish in the context of climbing.

I don't think Jerry is talking in this video at all. He's reading text written by someone else.
