Alex Puccio’s 2014 Rampage Continues

Back in early August, Alex Puccio “finally” did her first V14 with a repeat of Jade in RMNP.  Shortly thereafter she would finish 2nd in the Bouldering World Championships in Munich, Germany and win the Rock Master Boulder KO Contest in Arco, Italy.

Since returning from Colorado Puccio has not slowed down, adding repeats of Freaks of the Industry (V13) and The Wheel of Chaos (V14) to her impressive 2014 ticklist.  That ticklist now includes 10 V12’s, 4 V13’s and 2 V14’s since June began.

About The Wheel she had this to say on her 8a scorecard:

So psyched! Second day on it. Had to try hard! Mini epic today, fell on the last move first go today and then took a while to get back there. 25 moves long.

The Wheel of Chaos has also been repeated this summer by Rob D’Anastasio, Jon Cardwell and Jorg Verhoeven, bringing that problem’s number of sends to at least 9 in just two seasons 1.

  1.  Remember, this boulder is over 20 moves long and sits a very long way from the nearest road

    So two days working on the problem, and she nearly sent it first go of the second day?

    It’s almost like she’s insanely strong or something. I wonder how she’d do on Wheel of Wolvo.

      We’ll have to wait until next year since Lincoln Lake is closed for the season

      I definitely second the insanely strong comment. I seem to remember reading she did about the same thing with Jade. Truly elite level climbing, and super cool and inspiring to read about :).
