The second round of the 2014 IFSC Bouldering World Cup will take place this weekend (3rd and 4th May) in Baku, Azerbaijan.
Representing Team GB we have Shauna Coxsey, myself (Mina Leslie-Wujastyk), Jennifer Wood and Orrin Coley.
Shauna is currently ranked in 3rd overall (last 12 months), I am ranked 10th and Jen and Orrin are unranked as this is their first senior World Cup.
