Ashima's (11) 8c+ video for free at DPM


11 December 2012

DPM releases their video library for free including eleven year old Ashima Shiraishi's famous ascent of Lucifer, 8c+ in Red River Gorge. First year charged USD 12 for their videos and later USD 6. Now it is for free but you have to create an account and log in in order to see the videos. It should be noted that Ashima did Lucifer on her seventh day on and that this was just her second trip climbing on rock using a rope! Further more, Lucifer is a very well confirmed 8c+ without anyone saying it is 8c.
