Just climb through it

November 2014

At just 13, Ashima is one of the top rock climbers in the world. In July 2014, she became the second female in the world to scale a V14.

Like every other teenager, she likes cake and dislikes homework, but she sees everything as a problem she has to solve. A young girl with a big message - all of us are rock climbers everyday facing our own v14's. Just climb through it.

Ashima Shiraishi is one of the strongest climbers in the world. Discovering climbing at the age of 6 while at Central Park in New York City, it only took Ashima a year to begin climbing at the professional level. She soon drew attention not only from the climbing community, but also publications such as Sports Illustrated, The New York Times and The Economist. Now, at age 13, Ashima continues to train at indoor gyms in New York City, and when her school schedule allows, travels the world in search of increasingly difficult climbs.

Ashima is an 8th grade student at Rudolf Steiner School New York City.
