Just got a direct report from Chris Webb-Parsons. He and Alex Puccio is currently at Magic Wood/Averstal in Switzerland. Both of them have done really well here before and this trip is no exception.
Alex, who seem to have preserved her great form which made her a winner at Tierra Boulder Battle and a finalist at the Milan World Cup, has made a very impressive 2nd try ascent of the steep, powerful and dynamic Jack's broken heart, 8A+, and also Right hand of darkness, 8A.
