How does she see what she’s doing?

100 climbing wall in Tokyo - I know it’s a huge city but still, that’s insane! No wonder the Japanese are so good at climbing indoors and out.

She has a circular veil-like cut-out below the hair (you can only just make it out). They moves she does are pretty impressive considering!

When I was in Tokyo for the Games, I had 7 climbing gyms within walking distance. Couldn't visit them of course, but it was quite a realisation!
