Hard Sends By Weaver, Robinson, Johnson & Puccio

Brad Weaver has done what I believe to be the 4th the 5th ascent of Mike Doyle’s Lucifer (5.14c) at the Red River Gorge, KY.  Over in Utah, Paul Robinson did the 2nd ascent of James Litz’s Finger Hut Direct (V13) at Joe’s Valley.  Also in Joe’s Valley, Alex Puccio and Alex Johnson both dispatched 3 V10’s in a day.

      It’s a little bit surprising we haven’t already seen more of it. Sure was a slow news summer on the female crushing front.

      Very true. However, based on the success some of the more well known female climbers had sending V12s last year it seemed logical that this year we would see V13 send(s).

    8a.nu reports that austrian Johanna Ernst, known for her excellent performance in lead worldcups, just flashed a V9 in Joey’s Valley. She is currently on a bouldering roadtrip with Alex Puccio and Alex Johnson.
