Ashima Shiraishi has reported via her instagram site, that she has completed the first female climb of 24 Karats, 8C+ in the Red River Gorge. Ashima is only 12 years old, and is the only female to have done both 8B boulder and 8C+ route problems. Described as a 'Young Crusher' and a 'Bouldering Phenomenon' Ashima is widely regarded as one of the strongest climbers, male or female, of all time. At age 8, Ashima climbed the challenging boulder problem Power of Silence (V10) At age 9, she sent Chablanke (V11/12), Roger in the Shower (V11), and several other difficult boulders. At age 10, Ashima climbed Crown of Aragorn (V13). She is the youngest person ever to climb this grade, and one of very few females to climb a confirmed V13.
