Shauna Coxsey 504x250

Shauna Coxsey is a professional climber who has competed all over the world at the highest level.

Having been climbing since she was just four-years old, Shauna Coxsey is a veteran adventurer at just 22.

Her love of climbing came not from her family, but the French free climber Catherine Destiville, who inspired her to take up the sport. Initially embracing climbing as a hobby, Shauna soon developed her skills and advanced to professional level, becoming the first British woman to climb V12, V13, and V14.

Now the Head Coach for the RAF Climbing Team and winner of two World Cup Golds, Shauna is as passionate as ever about climbing and competes at the highest levels throughout the world.
