Alex Puccio seems to be in the best shape of her life. This year her ticklist gets more impressive by the minute. Just a month ago she sent her second V14 | 8B+. Yesterday, in Joe’s Valley, Utah, she repeated Ben Moon’s Black Lung, her fifth V13 | 8B.
Austrian climber Jakob Schubert, right after winning the 2014 Overall Lead World Cup title, has paid his first visit to Switzerland’s Magic Wood. Despite having focused on lead all season he has managed to flash another 8B and send, among other things, two 8B+ problems.
Austrian climber Katha Saurwein has made a successful trip to the Rocky Mountain National Park (Colorado, USA), managing to climb Nuthin’ but sunshine 8B | V13 and several other hard boulders. Also, in Switzerland, Czech climber Martin Stráník has climbed his first 8C problem.
