Ashima Shiraishi (13) has flashed Swordfish Trombone, ~8A, at the Happy Boulders, Bishop, CA.
The other day, on the first day of the year, she succeeded on her goal for 2015, The Swarm, ~8B+, thereby becoming the second female to do two ~8B+'s. Now, she has pulled off what could be the hardest flash in her young life.
In some guide books the problems is given 8A+, but recently it seems general consensus says 8A. Extremely impressive regardless!
Now Ashima is on her way home, but 8B+, 8B, 2 x 8A+ and 8A FLASH in 10 days or so isn't that bad considering she is only 13...
