About Alex Puccio

Alex Puccio is the strongest female American boulderer and the most accomplished female American bouldering competitor. She’s won ABS Nationals nine times and has medaled 13 times in Bouldering World Cup events since 2009. Her goal this year is to be the overall IFSC World Cup Bouldering champ and to climb V15.

  She was the 4th woman to climb V14 (Jade and then Wheel of Chaos in Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado), she’s climbed seven V13’s, and she’s done all of this in the past year. Naturally, I wanted to know how she went from climbing V12 to crushing V14 in such a short amount of time, so we talked all about how her training, diet, and mental game have changed recently.
