Ashima Shiraishi, 14, has made the first female ascent of Fred Nicole's razor crimp fiesta Terre de Sienne, ~8B/+, at Hueco Tanks, TX. She also made a quick ascent of its neighbour, Diaphanous Sea, ~8A/+.
Today was day-1 of my trip back to Hueco Tanks, TX!!! I shocked myself by getting the first female ascent of the legendary razor blade climb, Terre de Sienne (V14)!
She also says she got a split on her index finger (surprise, surprise), so I guess Terremer, ~8C, will have to wait a few days.
Terre de Sienne was Ashima's third or fourth of the grade, depending on whether you want to call The Swarm, 8B or 8B+, so let's just say it's her fourth ~8B+.
- Golden Shadow, Rocklands
- The Swarm, Bishop
- Nuclear War, NY
Add the half dozen of 8B's she has done and it's beginning to look like a decent tick list. For a 14 year old that is...
