[VIDEO] Petzl athlete Ashima Shiraishi sends 9a/+ at age 13

During her spring break, 13-year-old Ashima Shiraishi flew from her home in New York City to climb in Catalunya's famous Santa Linya Cave. While she was there, she managed to climb harder than perhaps any woman ever before.

Shortly after she completed her first “project,” Ashima went on to send 9a/+ Ciudad de Dios.
