The In Hell start was first climbed by Mark Katz and adds a considerable amount of hard moves to an already difficult problem.
Shauna described the Parisella's Cave on her blog:
"Any of you who have ever been to Parisella's Cave will be totally aware of the lack of beauty, the insanely polished rock, the lovely stench of goat poop and the hard crazy moves it has to offer. The cave is definitely not for every one but it stays dry and that is definitely a plus since it very rarely stops raining at the moment. And at least its outside, although the climbing style can feel very much like indoors, definitely good training though."
Shauna recently defended her title as British Bouldering Champion, competing against other top UK boulderers and also American climber Alex Puccio in the recent British Bouldering Championships held at the cancelled Cliffhanger event in Sheffield.
Here is a video of Shauna in action at the BBC event:
