About Alex Johnson
In 2008 Alex made history by becoming the first American to win a Bouldering World Cup on US soil, at the GoPro Mountain Games. In 2010 she made history again, winning gold in Switzerland, becoming only the second American woman to win a Bouldering World Cup overseas.
In the last few years Alex has shifted her focus away from competitions and honed in on outdoor projects, building an impressive tick-list filled with dozens of iconic first female ascents including Hungry Hungry Hippos V12/13, and multiple other V12s like Clear Blue Skies in Colorado, The Mandala in Bishop, and Book of Nightmares in Red Rock. Alex has also spent time getting off the deck climbing highballs like her recent Red Rock first ascent Critically Acclaimed (V9/10), Diesel Power (V10) in Yosemite, Golden Showers (V10), and flashing the infamously dangerous Luminance (V10) in Bishop, California.
