Alex Puccio on The Centaur.
SCARPA [full disclosure: SCARPA is a Verde client] recently announced that World Cup boulderer Alex Puccio, 24, is the brand’s most recent athlete ambassador.
We only know Puccio from her impressive climbing résumé, but a few points jumped out at us from the official SCARPA announcement that make us think she’s pretty rad both on and off rock.
- Puccio learned to climb from her mom, who is still her biggest fan.
- She’s loves to climb… anything.
- She teaches kids to climb when she’s not competing on the global circuit.
As Mountain Divas we don’t judge anyone by gender, but we sure like to celebrate when women support each other (mom teaching daughter to climb), keep open and focused minds (success in all disciplines) and understand the inherent value of sharing our active and outdoor passions with kids.
Congrats to SCARPA and to Ms. Puccio. Read the complete announcement on the SCARPA blog.
