VIDEO: Alex Megos - Rotpunkt Trailer

Rotpunkt is a new film from Patagonia chronicling Alex Megos' success over the past few years. Alex rose to fame in 2013 with his onsight of Estado Critico in Siurana; the first 9a onsight. Since then, he has become one of the sport's top performers, regularly climbing at the highest levels in sport, bouldering and competitions. The film takes an in-depth look at the development of redpoint climbing and how it began in Bavaria with iconic climber Wolfgang Gullich.

You can catch Rotpunkt at Kendal Mountain Festival on Saturday 16th November at 19:00-20:30 in the Brewery Arts Centre Theatre.

Mistake in the introductory text - it was Kurt Albert who invented redpoint climbing, in 1975 in the Frankenjura; not Wolfgang Güllich, who was 15 at the time and just starting (albeit meteorically!) in the Pfalz.

Can't edit any more - just watched the trailer, which seems to suggest that the film also makes the same mistake.
