At age of 13, she climbed the route Open Your Mind Direct (9a+) and Ciudad de Díos (9a/+) in Santa Linya, Spain.

“In climbing, gender really doesn’t matter,” Shiraishi says. “You’re just facing the wall. It’s just your determination and focus and dedication, and that’s what makes you stronger.” She continues “When I climb, I’m doing what I love to do,” she says. “I feel like a leader of myself, not a leader of a sport.” Ashima is incredible talented and determined.
