SCARPA’s First Friday Film Fest: March

Mar. 6th 2015

Happy First Friday Film Fest! See the latest video collection featuring our athletes on big mountain adventures. From V14 sends to Aspen’s big lines and weekending in Vermont, take a break from your day and get stoked for the weekend.

Spring Time Big Lines: Hunter Hayden Linkup

Jake Sakson and Paul Kimbrough, of Beans and Rice Free Ride, knock off two of Aspen’s big lines in a single push, skiing the East face of Hunter (13,497′) and the West face of Ski Hayden (13,300′). Both lines are 3,500′ of non stop leg screaming fun and offer steep open faces, reminiscent of Alaska style shredding.

Q&A with Alex Puccio: ABS National Champion Nine Years Running

Feb. 13th 2015

Alex sent her way to another ABS Nationals victory (her 9th, in fact). We caught up with her to hear about the win and what’s in store for her post-comp season.

How does it feel to come home with another ABS National Title?

A: I was very excited and honored to place first at ABS Nationals this year. This was my 9th ABS National Championship Title. Every year there are more youngsters in the finals and they are sooo strong. And every year it gets harder to win, But I’m definitely going to keep trying my hardest to be the best I can! :)

Alex Puccio recently did her first V13 — Top Notch — in Chaos Canyon, Rocky Mountain National Park. Check out her accomplishment. Just five days later, she was back in Rocky Mountain National Park and easily sent her second V13, Nothin’ but Sunshine, on her first try. Read about it here.

David Allfrey not only climbed seven full-length routes up El Capitan in seven days with Alex Honnold in June, but he also completed the Yosemite Triple Crown — climbing the three biggest walls in Yosemite — with Cheyne Lempe in 22 hours and 59 minutes. Read about Allfrey’s amazing day.

Happy Hour With Alex Puccio

Jul. 23rd 2014

We met up with Alex Puccio on a hot summer day in Boulder, Colorado. She lives just a few blocks from the SCARPA office and although the 25-year-old climber couldn’t make a 5 o’clock happy hour, she was thrilled to meet up for a midday coffee. We sat down with her to talk about where she’s been climbing and what she has in store for the future.

The Ever-Charging Alex Puccio

Mar. 19th 2014

Alex Puccio probably didn’t think she was going to become a world-class boulderer. That said, she might’ve had some idea after she entered the U.S. Bouldering Championships as a teenager… and won. Since then, she has gone on to become a tour de force in competitive bouldering, winning several titles in the last several years – including eight U.S. National Champion titles. At 24 years old, the native Texan is showing no signs of slowing down and is currently ramping up for another season on the World Cup. Though it’s hard to schedule in the time when you’re on the circuit, she even finds occasion to actually climb outside and answer a few questions from us.

When world-renowned boulderer Alex Puccio hits the IFSC Bouldering World Cup Circuit in April in Chongqing, China, she’ll be doing it in SCARPA rock shoes.

A friend first introduced her to SCARPA shoes while climbing in Europe, suggesting the rock shoes would be a good match for her style. “I really liked that SCARPA’s a family-owned company,” said Puccio. “I just have a really great vibe all around.”
