Alex Puccio is no stranger to competitions, she placed third overall in the IFSC World Cup Bouldering circuit in 2011 and has won the American Bouldering Series 10 times.
She has climbed over two dozen V12 in the U.S.A and Europe. Her first V13 was in 2014 at Rocky Mountain National Park and was called Top Notch. About a month later, she sent Jade V14.
In summer 2015, Puccio injured her knee at the Vail World Cup, tearing her MCL and ACL. Less than four months later, she climbed Free Range V13.
In February 2016, she won the Hueco Tanks Rock Rodeo and quickly climbed three V13s. A few month later, she underwent a spinal fusion surgery after doctors found a herniated disk between C5 and C6.
This year, she climbed New Base Line V14 and seven V13s, including The Shining and Evil Backwards.
