Alex Puccio about to set yet a new standard


Tuesday, 19 May

Alex Puccio, who just did Super Low Chimichanga Right 8B+, (c) Robin O'Leary, has done two 8A+'; A New Hope and Mandelorian Sit. "Psyched to have sent these 2 amazing V12's today! Faus gets all the credit for putting the time in and finding these boulders!!! :)"

During the last week, Alex has also done four 8B's, another two 8A+' and flashed Princess Leia 8A in Pine Cliff. In total, the runner up in the World Championship in 2014 who has had several bad injuries, done 209 boulders 8A and harder including six 8B+'. This means, the 157 cm tall, has by far the most impressive female boulder tick list.

You are about setting a new standard. How is that possible? How were you able to train during the lockdown?
Don’t have a home wall, just a hang board and some things around the apartment, but just trying to get outside safely. I have always felt strongest from just climbing outside. I do cardio as in running outside and hikes if I am not hiking far for climbing. I also do push-ups, theraband exercises, IYT’s and stretch daily to stay healthy.
But really rock is training I guess. My fingers get WAY stronger outside. I think my stamina might go down a bit since you are usually trying something harder for you so you will give an attempt then rest normally.

Systematic Devaluing ethics

Debate/Jens: In trad climbing you are not allowed to have the gear or quickdraws in place and it was also like this in the beginning of the sport climbing era. Some ten years ago, you still had to place the draws if you were going to claim an onsight. The devaluation of ethics have continued and now…

No correlation between semi and final results for Top-4 in Boulder WCs

During the Bouldering World Championship in 2007, Daniel Dulac won the semifinal by flashing all four problems but in the final he did not do a single Boulder even if each of the other five finalists did three problems on average. Daniel said that it was extremely frustrating to hear the spectators …
