Hey Flash Foxy: The Future is Ladies Climbing

Jul 06, 2015Brooklyn Boulders

Always wanted to try climbing but wanting an all-girl climbing crew to join first? Meet Shelma Jun, California native who is a Brooklyn transplant of four years, longtime member of the BKB community and founder of the infamous and badass all-girl climbing crew, Flash Foxy. She works at a community based non-profit, Hester Street Collaborative.

“I started climbing in 2009 — but not seriously until I moved to New York. I started climbing because I had reconstructive shoulder surgery and my doctor told me I couldn’t do anything that I could fall on. At the time I was back country skiing and snowboarding, so my friends brought me to the climbing gym to top rope.
Climbing is a really fun way to push yourself, to be a part of a community of people. It’s also kind of like problem solving, which is really fun.
