It’s our differences, our diversity, that makes us stronger as a unified community. This month, we look to demonstrate just that through an event involving climbing, yoga, meditation and compassion coaching.
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.
