FrictionLabs Pro Alex Puccio cranks New Base Line, V14 (8b+) and Riverbed, V13 (8b)!
Just released footage! (Caution adult language.) During her 2017 comp circuit, FrictionLabs Pro Alex Puccio made a quick trip to Switzerland to take a crack at Bernd Zangerl's burly test piece, New Base Line, V14 in Magic Wood. Looking fit and psyched as ever, Alex took down both NBL and the power endurance classic Riverbed, V13. Nice work Alex! 

Fun fact, Alex is the 4th woman in history to climb V14 with her ascent of Jade in 2014. NBL is her third of four V14s including Jade, Wheel of Chaos, NBL and Penrose Step.
