12 year old Ashima Shiraishi is currently visiting Boulder, Colorado to sample some of the bouldering there. After only a few days, she has already made the second female ascent of The Automator, ~8B.

The problem has previously been repeated by Angie Payne and Ashima completed it on her second day of trying. One of her plans now is to try Jade, ~8B+.

27crags has the full story.

Recently, Ashima returned from a trip to Europe where she, among other things, managed to repeat One summer in Paradise, ~8B, Pura Vida, ~8A+, The Left Hand of Darkness, ~8A+, The Right Hand of Darkness, ~8A, and Supersupernova, ~8A.

This should mean she has now done five 8B's in total.
