Banff Award – People’s Choice Award for Radical Reels

Meet the new faces of climbing: 15-year-old Ashima Shiraishi and 16-year-old Kai Lightner.

The impressive pair tackle one of the largest caves in Europe, Hanshelleren in Norway, a sprawling granite cathedral with 260 feet of overhanging climbing capped by a 160-foot headwall.

Ashima then travels to Japan, to attempt a massive granite boulder via a fierce 30-move boulder problem called Horizons. If she succeeds she will become the first woman, and youngest person, to climb the cutting-edge grade of V15…

Pushed out of their comfort zones, Kai and Ashima learn some hard but important lessons that will carry them to even greater heights.
