Ashima sends Fragile Steps, 8B
Yesterday, August 26, Ashima Shiraishi made the 2nd female ascent of Fragile Steps in The Fortress Sector of Rocklands. This climb is given the grade of 8B and has been repeated by only a few males and only one female, Dorothea Karalus who sent the line in September of 2010.
This marks Ashima's 3rd 8B and she is a mere eleven years old. I wonder which climb will be come her first 8B+?
Here is video of Jesse Bonin on the line:
