Shauna Coxsey sending <em>Nuthin&#39; But Sunshine</em> (V13). Photo by <a target=Cameron Maier. ” src=”https://d1vs4ggwgd7mlq.cloudfront.net/wp-content/uploads/Article-Images/News-Photos/April-2014/Shauna-v13-2.jpg” /> Shauna Coxsey sent Zarzaparilla (V13), her second boulder problem at the grade, in Albarracín, Northern Spain, on March 21.


Last year, Coxsey made history when she climbed Nuthin’ But Sunshine (V13) in Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado, becoming the first British woman to climb the grade.

The 21-year-old climber wrote in her blog about Zarzaparilla:

“I knew exactly what to do and I knew that I could do it so why did I keep falling. There were so many other problems that I wanted to try. I didn’t want to have to come back to this one again and again. The added pressure of returning knowing it was possible was daunting. A feeling I am becoming more and more familiar with.”

Coxsey is primarily a competition climber, but has said that climbing outside is a “treat.”.

According to an interview with ukclimbing.com, Coxsey plans to focus on training for the World Cups during the next few months.
