Jason Kehl On Ashima Shiraishi’s Time In Hueco Tanks

Cool update from Jason Kehl about time spent in Hueco Tanks with Ashima Shiraishi:

I personally think grades are meaningless, a rough estimate. Ashima has proven this by taking everything we thought they new about grades and throwing it out the window. Its all about your perspective not about a number someone labeled the rock with.

Perhaps you’ve heard of her?

“Top Out On See Spot, When You See It”

Jason Kehl mentions in another update on his Facebook page that Ashima Shiraishi has done Barefoot On Sacred Ground (V11 or 12) with the highball See Spot Run finish thrown in for good measure.  The Big Up cameras have been rolling throughout her trip so look to see Ashima once again in this year’s Reel Rock Tour.  Kehl has had his camera rolling so look for footage from Ashima’s trip to appear somewhere at some point in the near future.
