Bouldering powerhouse Alex Puccio added three more hard problems to her resume last Saturday in Rocky Mountain National Park. New to the list is Mandix (V10), Veritas (V11) and Low Left Veritas (V12).

“Tried Veritas years ago one day and thought it was too reachy so I never went back till yesterday and I guess I was wrong,” Puccio posted to Instagram.

In just one day Puccio was able to send all the climbs, which are on the Veritas Boulder, located just off the Bear Lake Road near the Sprague Creek parking lot. The boulder was first climbed via a stand start by Ken Kenney in 2001. Shortly after, Johnny Goicoecha added a sit-start to Veritas, bumping it up to a V11.

After her assault of Veritas Boulder, Puccio returned to her home in Boulder, Colorado where she trains for national and international bouldering competitions. She is a nine-time American Boulder Series Champion and has sent over 20 routes between V12 and V14.
