Shauna has been climbing since the age of four and, perhaps unusually for a climber of her talent, her family do not climb – instead she took her initial inspiration from Catherine Destiville. Sitting on her father's knee at only three years old she quickly became totally fascinated by the sport. At first climbing became a hobby but it quickly moved to becoming Shauna's sport, passion and life. Shauna's dream and ambition is to become a professional climber, something she's well on the way to achieving! Wanting to push herself as far as possible in both competitions and on rock, she has dedicated her life to the sport, training for the World Cup circuit and outdoor climbing.

Shauna's noteable acheivements:
Shauna also recently joined the BMC and fellow Lyon team member and GB captain Molly-Thompson Smith at the Westway in London to help promote climbing to the wider media as part of the efforts to promote climbing as a future Olympic sport.
Steve McClure, Lyon's Team Manager caught up with Shauna for a quick chat:
Steve: Are you planning on getting more into routes in the near future?
Steve: Are there any particular routes you would like to conquer?
Steve: Do you think route fitness is essential for boulder competitions these days?
Steve: What inspired you to look for support from Petzl and Beal?
Steve: What are you looking forward to the most working with Lyon/Petzl/Beal?
Steve: Beal are mainly known for their ropes but they also have an extensive range of bouldering kit. How are you getting on with the bouldering range?
