Alex Johnson Interview with DPM

 
Alex Johnson Interview with DPM

Alex Johnson recently completed The Mandala with the help of the new Five Ten Blackwing. Here's what she had to say about the experience: "This magnificent prow has been on my dream list since I first began climbing, and it's such an incredible personal accomplishment. I don't know what else I can say besides "I'm soo psyched!!" I split my index tip on the send and was planning on taking the next day off and resting, but somehow got suckered into climbing (of course) and managed to pump out Beefcake as well. I guess it was an alright rest day. :)"

 

Alex also sat down with DeadPointMagazine.com for an interview and told them what's next in store for her: "I don't know what's next. When I came out here, the two things at the top of my list were Haroun and the Mandala. Doing Haroun was exciting, but climbing the Mandala when I did was a bit of a surprise to me, and I haven't planned ahead enough to choose another project out here. But I do have a month left to play. Maybe I'll try The Swarm."
