Die derzeit wohl stärkste Boulderin der Welt, die US-Amerikanerin Alex Puccio lässt den Weltcup, Weltcup sein und klettert lieber an der frischen Luft und das wie immer recht erfolgreich. So bouldert sie mit “Green in the Face” (V13/Fb8b) in Castle Rock (Idaho) im 5. Versuch. Nach ihrer Statistik bei www.8a.nu wäre es ihr 29. Boulder im Schwierigkeitsgrad Fb8a oder härter. „Nebenbei“ gelingen ihr noch ein Flash von “Hearts and co**nba**s” (V10/ Fb7c+) und Second Place” (V10/ Fb7c+) im ersten Versuch. Glückwunsch Alex!

Alex bei Instagram: „Had another nice day trip out on the rocks! Yesterday we went to Castle Rock Idaho for the day. Even tho it was pretty warm out, even for me, I was able to climb “Green in the Face” V13/8B on my third try from the start and 5th try in total. The landing is a bit spicy, at least I thought, at the top but I had some awesome spotters and friends to help! The holds are all pretty small and crimpy so kind of my style. I also flashed “Hearts and co**nba**s” V10/ 7C+ (Not a nice name!) and climbed “Second Place” V10/ 7C+ 1st try. Wasn’t a flash since I warmed up on the climb to the right that shares the last 2 easy moves. In all it was a long, warm and FUN day with good people!!! Thank you photo @joelzerr“
