This is the project I spent a few days on but fell 3 times from the last hold that was wet I definitely cried myself to sleep on my last night I hope to finish projects like these in #2016!!!! Looking back on 2015, I'm proud of my accomplishments and obstacles I was able to tackle! Thank you all so much for the support and to my wonderful sponsors:) @evolvusa @thenorthface @clifbarcompany @petzl_official | photo: Yoshiko Saito #????? #V15"

This was the 2nd ascent after @dai_koyamada and the first female ascent!! I once again surprised myself by sending it after about 30 MINUTES of working on it!!!! There are so many amazing boulders here, it's unbelievable VIDEO COMING SOON.... (you can see how surprised I was when I got to the top) Thank you @dai_koyamada for the support! #merrychristmas #hinokage #v14 | Photo: @ikukoserata"
Foto: @ash_potatoes / Ashima Shiraishi Instagram Ashimas Kommentar: "Work on your splits Cuz you never know when flexibility can come in handy FUN FACT: After every climbing session, I do a lot of stretching including THE SPLITS! I also think that my habit (and a part of my routine) of stretching before and after climbing has prevented injuries #splits #climbing | Also won Regionals, which was fun as always!

My last few days projecting Terremer V15 (the extension of Terre de Sienne) were definitely frustrating. I fell countless times on the crux move and kept on deepening my split on my index finger and I also got one on my thumb This climb really has razor blades But when you think about it, the toughest days and those without success are the ones that you learn from the most. At the end of the day, I had to remind myself that falling is a huge part of the process of climbing. And this climb will never go anywhere. I'll be back for this one. Thank you for the support | photo: Rob Mulligan | @thenorthface @evolvusa @petzl_official"
Foto: Rob Mulligan / Ashima Shiraishi Instagram Ashimas Kommentar: "Today was day-1 of my trip back to Hueco Tanks, TX!!! I shocked myself by getting the first female ascent of the legendary razor blade climb, Terre de Sienne (V14)! It feels so good to see improvement in my climbing and that I've grown!! 3 years ago, I tried this climb for 2 weeks and got shut down on it. I also quickly sent Diaphanous Sea (V11/12), the iconic climb right next to it. I did not expect myself to do both of these climbs today!! But on the bad side, I got a nasty split on my index finger But I'm excited for the next few days! | Photo: Rob Mulligan"

Foto: @leibav / Ashima Shiraishi Instagram Ashimas Kommentar: "V11, V12 and V14 in a DAY! Holy CRAP!!!!!! I had the best day climbing today!!!! It's been a while since I climbed on some REAL ROCK!!!! Started off the day by sending Reckless V11 then Wetness the Fatness V12 pretty quickly! Later on, I decided to give Nuclear War V14 a try and managed to send it!!!! Nuclear War hasn't seen a 2nd ascent in 9 years (when Matt Bosley did it). Psyched to have gotten the 2nd and 1st Female Ascent! Stay tuned for some video bigupclimbing @reelrock Thanks for the help and pie!!!! @brycev123 @leibav WHAT A DAY Photo: @leibav"

It's so frustrating to be back in the U.S. without sending my project. But I'm excited to return soon!
