"Best line I've ever tried, what a legendary boulder. So incredibly psyched to get this done! I just felt like I hadn't reached my limit yet in rock climbing so I decided to stay in Magic Wood to try a really hard project. The line Riverbed immediately caught my attention when I saw it for the first time, and when I saw the video of Alex Puccio climbing it I was really inspired and I knew I would enjoy the moves. At first I thought it would be too hard for me now and I needed a lot of time to do it, but when I had worked out all the moves, I saw it becoming possible more and more. I decided to give it my all and try to climb it this trip. In the end I think it was mostly a mental battle and I'm so happy I could pull through and send this dreamline!

Normally I don’t go bouldering by myself, always with my boyfriend and coach, but he couldn’t stay as long unfortunately. But because it was my only chance to climb outdoors with all the corona restrictions and also no competitions I decided to stay by myself in my bus.
