While waiting for her project to dry, Ashima Shiraishi, 14, made quick work of Nordic Flower, ~8c/+, in the Hanshelleren cave at Flatanger, Norway.

9a was originally suggested for Nordic flower, but has since come down a bit and settled around the 8c/+ mark.

From Instagram: It was nice to take a break from my wet/hard project and to climb this 160ft beast!

Yes, apparently that's correct 8c's aren't difficult enough to qualify as a project for Ashima anymore!
Her project? Thor's hammer, 9a+, but according to Henning Wang the chances of it drying up before Ashima has to go back are slim to none unfortunately...
