Chasing Goals Not Grades

Nice interview by Crux Crush with Alex Puccio:

I want to push myself outside. I haven’t tried many V13s so maybe I’ll try to do my first V13, but I don’t like chasing a grade. I like to find a climb, and it’d be great if I found a climb that’s hard for me, but I have to be inspired by it. Everyone’s like, “You can climb V13, probably V14. Why haven’t you gone and found one?” But that’s the thing, I don’t want to go search for one. I like climbing outside because it’s fun and I want to try hard things, but I want it to come organically. I’ve never tried anything longer than 3 or 4 days.

It’s kind of crazy to think that Puccio has never done a V13 given her obvious talent and all her success on the comp circuit, but surely it’s just a matter of time.
