Alex Puccio is a few months out from an operation to fuse her spinal cord in her neck.
She has been busy training and recovering and has been climbing outdoors for two weeks. While she can’t risk falling off a boulder, she has been pushing the sport climbing grades.
She recently sent her first-ever 5.13d with a tick of Atomic Cow on Rodeo Wave at Wild Iris. Before that, she flashed Cow Reggae 5.13b. Insert a no excuses quote here.
