Ashima Shiraishi sent Nuclear War (V14) in southern New York, this weekend, securing the boulder problem’s first repeat.

Shiraishi began the day by noshing on a V11 and a V12, completing the problems in just a few tries. She proceeded to Nuclear War (V14), a Matt Bosley first ascent that adds a six-move start to War Cry (V11). Nuclear War tackles the center line of a near 80-degree roof.

Shiraishi became the second woman to climb V14 after her 2014 ascent of Fred Nicole’s Golden Shadow in Rocklands, South Africa, at age 13. One year later, she joined Alex Puccio as one of only two women to have climbed multiple V14s.
