7/3/14 - Alex Puccio sent her first V13 this week, on day two of working Top Notch in Chaos Canyon, Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado. Puccio announced her success on Monday via her Facebook page, and it's safe to say she's stoked.

According to her 8a scorecard, 25-year-old Puccio has been hard at work lately, completing 12 double-digit boulder problems in the past few weeks, giving her a total of over 20 V12s in her career so far. Top Notch is a proud send. It was first put up by Britain's Tyler Landman in 2008, has only seen a handful of big-name ascents since, and is considered solid for the grade. Carlo Traversi and Jimmy Webb have both called it the best problem in Chaos Canyon.

Sam Davis shared this video of Puccio working the moves on Instagram.

And here's a photo from the send.

Update (7/7/14)Only five days after sending her first V13, Alex Puccio has sent her second. And not only did Puccio finish Nuthin But Sunshine (V13) in Rocky Mountain National Park on July 7, but she did so on her first try! Puccio is on fire right now.
