Shauna Coxsey’s World Cup winning success is indicative of her competitive nature. She explained on her blog after this year's competition that she "competes to win."
"I compete to perform at my best," she wrote. "I compete to earn the spot on the top of the podium. We all fight for it. We all try as hard as we possibly can in that moment. It is an honor to compete along side determined, supportive and friendly people.”
Coxsey also climbs hard outside and was the first British woman to climb V13 when she sent Nuthin’ But Sunshine in Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado, in 2013. She sent her second V13 this past March, climbing Zarzaparilla, in Albarracín, Northern Spain.
With a successful World Cup season under her belt, Coxsey and her boyfriend Ned Feehally took some much-needed time in the quiet wilderness. Check out the couple compiling an impressive tick-list in Snowdonia National Park, North Wales.
