Ashima Shiraishi, 13, has repeated Dave Graham's A Maze of death, ~8A+, at the Bardini boulders in Bishop, CA.

On Instagram, she calls it "Maze of death", but, knowing Dave Graham, I'm pretty sure it's named after Philip K. Dick's novel.

Ashima arrived in Bishop just a couple of days ago and with plenty of time left, mark my words: this is only the beginning as the style at Bishop should suit her.

Fingers crossed she has enough pads...because the boulders around there are big and Ashima is not.
