she got 13 in the women's world cup in lead, that's not bad eh? Not everyone can be Janja Garnbret.

True, but plenty of people thought Ashima was going to be.

She just came second or third in a pan American bouldering comp. It was won by Sierra Blair Coyle and she beat Kyra Condie who seems strong AF but that doesn't translate to comp results. So she's still competing but here trajectory seems to have levelled off or taken a dip even.

It's very common that the performance dips a bit while getting used to a new weight distribution. Happens to a lot of young climbers, both boys and girls. Some get over it, some not.

She also won the lead comp at that same PanAm event.

That Pan american thing isnt much of an indicator as you would struggle to name more than 2 or 3 people in the comp. Other than Ashima there isnt a world cup finalist in the lead.

Seems like she is not finding the adult comps as easy as the american hype machine thought she would. Hopefully this is temporary though as she was something quite exciting.

Looks like she has moved to Japan as well now so focused on the olympics.
