Jenya Kazbekova from Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine, daughter of former bouldering champ Serek Kazbekov, climbed 8a already four years ago, and she hasn't stopped improving.
In this video portrait of the 15 year old, she climbs Parallel'nyj mir, 8b+, which she did aged 13.
Jenya won the Youth world Championship in 2010 and took the silver in 2011.
