After winning her 9th National Championship in bouldering, Alex Puccio made the trip out to Bishop, CA where she has made a quick one day ascent of Matt Birch’s crimping testpiece The Swarm (V13)[1. Maybe slash V14?]. This is her eighth V13 or harder in the last eight months[2. After somehow having done none previously].
Super psyched to have sent The Swarm 8B / V13! And psyched I was able to send it on my first day on it!!! 😀 it went from 70 degree weather to a snow storm in one day and tomorrow it will be back to 60's. Most of the style here in Bishop is hard for me, but I guess this one was an exception. This place is sooo BEAUTIFUL!!! Thank you @joelzerr for the awesome photo and support! @fugoolife @scarpana @frictionlabs @beauknowsphotos @bearcam @sheneenagins #GoAnywhere #socold #fingershurt
@alex_puccio89 did The Swarm V13(8B) today in the most heinous, frigid conditions! There were icicles hanging off the lip of the boulder and a heart breaking fall from the last move but in the end the girl persevered. @beauknowsphotos @bearcam @sheneenagins @scarpana @fugoolife @frictionlabs #theswarm #zerrproductions
