Ashima Shiraishi stretching

Stretching & Meditating with Ashima Shiraishi

We got to hang out with Ashima Shiraishi a bit before she started a Sunday climbing session at BKB. As a relatively new climber, I was surprised to discover that one of the world’s best rock climbers is a thirteen year old girl. She first fell in love with rock climbing at age seven in Central Park, and has been on a steady ascent in the climbing world ever since.
