Two 8A+ by Alex Puccio

Monday, 26 April

Alex Puccio is back on track after a mental breakdown, due to Covid-19, and has done two 8A and two 8A+ in the last two weeks.

8A+, Temper Tantrum in Elevenmile Canyon: "Sent second try after doing anger management. Last move was even wilder for me since I was a little bit more tired. Hard cool swing on one hand and one foot hold on the arete and it’s the last move. Hold on for the ride or you will pay for it! :0."

8A+, Burnt in Kraft Boulders: "Soooo hoootttt out! Climbing at 9:30pm with lights and it’s still 80 degrees!"

This 157 cm tall 31-year-old has the most impressive female bouldering tick list with 225 8A and harder including eight 8B+. She has also been #1 in the 8a ranking game for almost ten years straight, even if she has had some bad injuries. Alex started out as a competition climber, and in 2006 she won the USA Nationals for the first time, out of eleven! In 2009 she won her first World Cup, and in 2018 she won again. She has also gotten silver in the World Championship in 2014. In other words, altogether Alex is the best female boulderer in history.
