Shauna Coxsey has repeated Bernd Zangerl's New Base Line, 8B+, at Magic Wood/Averstal, Switzerland.

Today I climbed New Base Line. My first 8B+ /V14
Psyched doesn't come close :)

This was her first of the grade making her the third female ever after Tomoko Ogawa and Ashima Shiraishi, the latter beating her by just one day. Shauna has previously done three 8B's: Nuthin but Sunshine, Zarzaparilla and One Summer in Paradise, which she did very recently.

As strange as it sounds, I think that might actually be an understatement!

Awesome effort! Well done Shauna. Actually I think she'd done three 8B's if memory serves, Nuthin But Sunshine (http://www.ukclimbing.com/news/item.php?id=68164 ), Zarzaparilla (http://www.ukclimbing.com/news/item.php?id=68822 ) and One Summer in Paradise (http://www.ukclimbing.com/news/item.php?id=69028 ).
