Southern Smoke Repeated By 12-Year-Old Harry Edwards

Southern Smoke Repeated By 12-Year-Old Harry Edwards

Don’t tell Joe Kinder or this guy, but it looks like Kinder’s route Southern Smoke (5.14c) in the Red River Gorge is the new go to route for young crushers.

After being repeated by 11-year-old Ashima Shiraishi and 13-year-old Kai Ligthner, 12-year-old Harry Edwards made the long trip from Arizona to redpoint the route on April 20th.  Edwards had previously climbed Omaha Beach (5.14a) and God’s Own Stone (5.14a-ish) during a trip to the Red last spring.

    I’m pretty much thinking the climbing community is about 5 years (when these young crushers grow into their adult frames) away from witnessing some serious progression. With the current staggering rate of progression, I’m struggling to even imagine what we’ll see.

      Of course. I’ll also be happy to post about when one of the adults that has done SS and logged it as 5.14c also climbs Necessary Evil.
