Alex Puccio has made the first female ascent of Slashface, ~8B, first climbed by Fred Nicole in January 1998 and considered 8B+ at the time.

Since she did her first ~8B, Top notch, in July 2014, Alex has done a total of 15 of the grade or harder, more than any other female in the world. She is one of only five women to have climbed ~8B+.

Unfortunately, this trip to Hueco was a short one, so we can't expect the first ~8C just yet.
