VIDEO: Coxsey Climbs New Base Line (V14)

The rough, uncut video of Shauna Coxsey topping out on her first V14, becoming the third woman in the world to climb this grade. Pretty good for a video shot on an IPhone set up in a tree.

A couple weeks ago, Shauna Coxsey became the third woman to climb a V14 by topping out on New Base Line in Magic Wood, Switzerland.
“I’ve been reluctant to share the video of my ascent of New Base Line due to the quality of the footage,” Coxsey wrote on her various social media accounts after sharing the video. “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 … 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.”
Below is the video of her ascent.
