Ashima Shiraishi: A Strong MindBy Rock and Ice | November 30th, 2016
“Ashima Shiraishi is an American rock climber from New York City. At just 15 years old, she balances her time between high school, friends, and normal teenage activities in addition to rigorous training and competitions with other world-class athletes. While some attribute her success to her accomplishments as a young female athlete, many of the world’s top climbers generally regard her as one of the best climbing athletes despite age and gender.”
