Young British boulderer Shauna Coxsey has now finished her three week tour of Colorado boulder problems.

Shauna has now rounded up her trip on her blog.

Highlights include:

  • Rebellion - V9
  • Whispers of Wisdom - V11
  • Mind Matters - V12 (Shauna says possibly V11)
  • Dark Horse - V10 (Flash)
  • Riddles in the Park - V12

On the blog Shauna talks a little about giving it everything:

"I talk a lot about trying hard and putting every thing you can into a boulder which is something that has totally transformed my climbing this year and has definitely made me much stronger mentally and physically both in training and in competition. However, this is not something that I had ever tried to translate onto rock. I guess mainly because I rarely get outdoors. On this trip I have got onto boulders ready to try hard and get to the top. I have felt holds on a climb and thought 'as if I can hold that' and gone on to complete the boulder in a few tries and I have held on so tight that I cut the side of my finger. I climbed an amazing V11 called Whispers of Wisdom, a magical line of good spaced out holds up a steep wall with a 20m slab to finish. I don't think I have ever tried so hard on anything."
