Two 5.14c’s By Ashima Shiraishi In The Red River Gorge

11-year-old Ashima Shiraishi had an incredible trip to the Red River Gorge over the past week or so.  She started the trip by climbing her first 5.14a and then flashing her first 5.14a shortly thereafter.  With that out of the way she set her sights on something a little harder, and in back to back days on Friday and Saturday she succeeded in climbing both Southern Smoke and Lucifer.  DPM’s Mikey Williams was there on Friday for the Southern Smoke send and he has more details on the Lucifer send as well.  Amazing.

    My jaw has dropped for about ten minutes straight reading these articles.

    When descirbing her achievements I think we can all drop the modifiers of “..for a child” or “… for a woman” and recognize that she’s really one of the top guns. That is a week’s worth of sends that would be noteworthy for any of the climbing elite.
