Ashima Shiraishi Breaks Record, Ascends Open Your Mind

Mar 23, 2015Brooklyn Boulders

Ashima prepped for the climb by “something like making your mind and your soul quiet and strong”; perhaps a bit like meditation. Her insane ape index of +4 undoubtedly helped, along with her intuitive climbing IQ and strength.
In a recent piece on Ashima by The Guardian, resident ‘climb designer’ (aka, routesetter) Garrett Koeppicus is quoted, “She is wildly talented. She’s like spiderwoman. She’s just crazy good,”.
Hailed as ‘the future’, it’s been inspiring to see Ashima climb harder, stronger and endlessly push limits for the past five years. We can’t wait to see what she does next.
