The Centaur - another 8A+ for Alex Puccio
Alex Puccio is definitely by far one of the best bouldering women in the world. This year has already sent several top problems (including 2x V12/8A+ Diaphanous Sea and Tequila Sunrise in Hueco Tanks) and win the first edition of the prestigious competition UBC Pro Tour in the United States. Alex went a little worse in the third edition of the World Cup in Vail, where she wiped out on the podium, eventually taking fourth place.
The last sending of Alex is The Centaur 8A+ (originally graded as 8B, then 8A+/B), located in Rocky Mountain National Park. Like the case of Tequila Sunrise, Puccio made the FFA of this problem.
