Rotpunkt documents the advent, the agony and the art of the redpoint through Alex Megos’s efforts to redefine the boundaries of the form. The film includes words from Sonnie Trotter.
It traces the redpoint, which transformed rock climbing from an engineering problem into a brilliant test of mental and physical strength—from its origins with a ragtag bunch of tights-wearing revolutionaries in rural Bavaria, to its golden era with Wolfgang Güllich, to its new ideal in the German phenom Megos as he battles to unlock new levels of human potential.

I don't know what just happened yesterday to be honest. I think it'll still take a while till I've realized what this means. It feels strange to say, but it looks like I'm coming back to Tokyo next year for the Olympics! And for more sushi of course 🍣🤷🏼♂️ Thank you everyone for the support and for believing in me. I would have not done this without all of you. 🙏🏼 @patagonia_climb @redbullgermany @goretexeu @tenayaclimbing @cafekraft_nuernberg @sterlingrope @dmm_wales @fazabrushes @frictionlabs #stylefirst #carrotsforpower Pic @toksuede
