The BMC has posted the exclusive footage of Shauna Coxsey climbing New Base Line (V14) in Magic Wood, Switzerland. Shauna's ascent was just the third time a V14 has been climbed by a female after Tomoko Ogawa (Catharsis, Shiobara, Japan 2012) and Ashima Shiraishi who climbed Golden Shadow just the day before Shauna's send. The BMC posted Shauna's description of the video:
"I've been reluctant to share the video of my ascent of New Base Line due to the quality of the footage. I went to Magic Wood for a holiday. No film crew, no photographers, just myself and Ned. I wanted to film my ascent of the boulder to send to my coach so we balanced my phone in a tree as I was too scared to attempt the boulder without a spot. Due to the bad weather there was no opportunity to film the climb at a later date. This is my most significant ascent, and I have decided that I want to share my experience. I know this video doesn't show the whole climb but I hope you can appreciate my effort. I have watched this video countless times and I think it's pretty funny..."
