First Female Ascent by Alex Puccio

After a few days plagued by illness and bad skin, American boulderer Alex Puccio has bounced back and made what I believe is the First Female Ascent of El Techo De Los Tres b, 8A, at Hueco Tanks, Texas.

This is her twelfth 8A boulder problem in the last twelve months.

El Techo... was originally given 8C, but first a far better sequence was discovered and then it broke. Surprisingly, this has only made it better.
