Alex Puccio has repeated Bernd Zangerl's classic New Base Line, ~8B+, at Magic wood/Averstal, Switzerland. When the problem was put up in 2002 ~8C was suggested, but after a few repeats it came down to ~8B+.

This was the third female ascent of the problem after Shauna Coxsey and Anna Stöhr.

It was also Alex's third of the grade after Jade and The Wheel of Chaos, both of which she climbed three years ago. It seems she is now finally back to full strength after all the injuries she's been plagued with.
