Alex Puccio is, without a shadow of doubt, one of the strongest female boulderers of all times. Last summer the American ticked Jade in the Rocky Mountains National Park, needing a mere 4 days to get to grips with this Daniel Woods testpiece. This time is startling, especially if you consider the fact that currently 8B+ is the maximum of female bouldering. While it’s clear that the leap from 8B+ to 8C is enormous, we believe it’s equally clear that bouldering is rapidly heading towards its historic first female 8C.
