14-Year-Old Ashima Shiraishi From Queens is Considered the Best Female Rock Climber in the World

In this video from Great Big Story, meet the 14-year-old who has taken the rock-climbing world by storm, Queens' Ashima Shiraishi.

Ashima Shiraishi can scale boulders and rock faces that most people twice her age simply can't. The 14-year-old New York native started climbing boulders in Central Park when she was just six years old and hasn't looked back since. Keep going Ashima!
