Shauna Coxsey: World Cup Wins and V12 Boulders

posted by dpm on 06/23/2012


Nineteen-year-old UK climber Shauna Coxsey is in the midst of an amazing run of hard climbing. Earlier this month at the Bouldering World Cup in Vail, Colorado, she stood on the podium with a proud second place win. She also placed 2nd at the World Cup in Slovenia and 2nd in Innsbruck, Austria. Over the last six consecutive Bouldering World Cups she's placed in the top four every time.  

After the recent World Cup in Vail, she's stayed in the mountains of Colorado for some impressive sends on the boulders around Rocky Mountain National Park. She sent her second and third V12 boulder problems with Riddles in the Park and Mind Matters. Her first came last year in the UK with Pilgrimage.

Shauna also managed sends of Unshackled Sit, Whispers of Wisdom, and Valis (all V11) as well as six other V10's including a flash of Dark Horse at Guanella Pass. Shauna has posted a couple of videos of her sends that you can see below.
