Ashima repeats Sleepy rave, ~8C

Ashima Shiraishi has repeated Dai Koyamada's Sleepy Rave, a link up of Sleepy Hollow, 8A+, Cave man, 7C, and Dead Can't Dance, 8A, in the Hollow Mountain Area bouldering, Grampians, Australia.

What a day today!!! I might've had the best climbing day yet😁 I SENT SLEEPY RAVE (V15) 😍🙈🙈 then climbed Mana (V13) which kicked my ass yesterday. Both climbs put up by @dai_koyamada . And of course the news of the confirmation of climbing being in the 2020 @olympics 🇯🇵 It always feels amazing when you realize that the pain, sweat and tears were worth it!

Ashima calls it ~8C, which was also Dai Koyamada's original suggestion back when The wheel of life was considered ~8C+. I'm not sure it's still considered ~8C, and I guess 8A+ to 7C to 8A wouldn't normally add up to it, but who am I to tell?

If Ashima can now add X-treme cool, ~7C, she will have the full cave link-up (The Wheel of Life) in the bag.

Does Ashima have dual citizenship? Interesting she used the Japanese flag when talking about the olympics rather than the American.

The Olympics are in Tokyo in 2020 which is why probably why she went with a Japanese flag

Yes she does. "[...] since I have a dual citizenship I'm unsure of which country I will represent" Source: Ashima's comment at https://www.instagram.com/p/BIrzd-gDJBM/
