Friday Inspiration – New York Kid on the Road

I’ll admit it, I’ve got some hometown pride associated with the success of Ashima Shiraishi.  She’s a New York kid, she climbs regularly at my gym, and she rules.  In fact, just this week I saw Ashima crushing it at Brooklyn Boulders.  She’s gotten so much taller in the last year, and her climbing continues to impress.  I wonder, how much more can so do? How much better will she get? Its going to be very interesting to see how this generation of kid climbing phenoms develops.
