Alex Megos Goes on Sending Spree in Norway

Three V14's, eight V13's – three of which being flashes – and one 5.14d made for a successful quick trip

Alex Megos recently returned from a sendy 12-day climbing trip in Norway. He started his trip bouldering in Vingsand, a popular destination for high-quality gneiss and granite blocs. While there, he sent three V14’s, seven V13’s, three V12’s, and four V11’s. Three of the V13’s were flashes and one was a first ascent.

After Vingsand, he stopped in Hell. While the Hell crag is by no means world-class, it is a unique climbing area for Scandinavia, a region that has very little limestone rock climbing. The area contains a bunch of sport routes and a few tough drop-off boulder problems, the most difficult being Mini V13.

On his short visit, Megos sent Mini V13, Body Says Yes V12, and Hells Angels V12. He also repeated Hello 5.14d, a route first established by Adam Ondra in 2017. Ondra recently also made a quick stop in Hell after working Project Big in Flatanger. Like Megos, he also climbed Mini V13.
