Alexander Megos completes first 'brushpoint' of Frankenjura 8c
The video of German climber Alex Megos climbing Father and Son (8c) in Frankenjura in Germany, brushing each hold immediately after using it...
Brushing holds after using them is one of the fundamental rules of proper crag etiquette. In this video Alexander Megos takes this concept to another level, brushing each hold immediately after having touching it, during his redpoint ascent. Note the German is not on any old route, but on an 8c (possibly 8b+). Check out the footage of the first "brushpoint" of Father and Son in the Frankenjura ;-)

Don't forget to @fazabrushes the holds after climbing! Good training day outside with @jenya_kazbekova, @kraftfactory and Tim. Routes in order of climbing: - warmup 7a - Steep Mud 7c+ - Father and Son 8c (retro onsight) - Sonic Excess 8b+ (retro flash) - 2x Father and Son (double lap) - Hellboy 8a+ - Father and Son (brushpoint) I personally think Father and Son felt more like 8b+ to me. Especially compared to some old school 8c's here in the Frankenjura. But either way an amazing route! @patagonia_climb @redbullgermany @goretexeu @tenayaclimbing @cafekraft_nuernberg @dmm_wales @sterlingrope @frictionlabs @fazabrushes #stylefirst #carrotsforpower
