Ashima Shiraishi Sends V15

Ashima Shiraishi, 14, made history yesterday when she sent Horizon (8C/V15) at Mount Hiei, Japan. She became the first female and the youngest person to climb V15.

“My dream came true!!!!!!! ?I just sent Horizon V15 in Hiei, Japan! I can’t believe that I have become the 1st female to do a V15 and the youngest person ever!!!”

The ascent comes less than two weeks before her 15th birthday.
