During her 2017 comp circuit,  Alex Puccio made a quick trip to Switzerland to take a crack at Bernd Zangerl’s burly testpiece, New Base Line (8B+/V14) in Magic Wood. Looking fit and psyched as ever, Alex took down both NBL and the classic power-endurance problem, Riverbed (8B/V13).  Alex became the fourth woman in history to climb V14 with her ascent of Jade in 2014. NBL is one of four V14s Puccio has sent; the others are: Jade, Wheel of Chaos and Penrose Step.

Other climbers to have sent NBL include Anna Stöhr and Shauna Coxsey.
