First V14 For Mirko Caballero

At just 13 years of age, Mirko Caballero has done his first V14 with a repeat of Paul Robinson’s Meadowlark Lemon in Red Rock, NV1.  He had previously done two V13s including the stand start to Meadowlark Lemon, and he just recently won his 4th ABS Youth Nationals title at the beginning of March.  I think this kid might be pretty good.

Alex Kahn has a nice profile of Caballero for Vagabundo Magazine that you can read here.

Here are a few Instagram photos of Caballero’s efforts on Meadowlark Lemon over the past couple of months:

DONE DEAL. Still can't believe it...Meadowlark Lemon sit V14 (8B+) !!!!I never worked sooo hard for a project. Took me another 3 trips after sending the stand, but today it finally came together. Nice job Paul Robinson on opening this one. One of the best ever! Ahhh!!!!!

Another #throwback topping out Meadowlark Lemon Stand V13 (8B)... Such a sick boulder!!!

Awesome last day in Red Rocks! Sent the Meadowlark Lemon Stand V13!! Super psyched to finish this one off before going back home! Photo by @threepeakfilms #bouldering #climbing
