[VIDEO] Alex Megos Climbs “Van De Panique” (8c/5.14b) In The Pouring Rain (Epic Climber, Ep. 4)

Described by Adam Ondra as "one of the best sport crags in the world" the "Cry Baby" sector of Rawyl is characteristic of many Swiss sport climbing venues. Tall, imposing and very steep.

The limestone buttress commands impressive views of Lac de Tseuzier and its surrounding hills. The climbing is practically unparalleled in the whole of Switzerland and even better for our climbers it stays (mostly) dry in the rain.

While Hazel and Emily set their sights on one of the crag’s classic 8a routes, Tommy and Alex turn their attention to the long, sustained 8c ‘Van de Panique.’ Tommy drops the onsight, but Alex, with his flair for fast ascents, steps up eagerly to try the line.
