Transcript for 14-Year-Old Spider Girl Fearlessly Climbs to the Top
And finally tonight, if you are afraid of heights, consider yourself warned. Not only is this girl hanging from that ledge right there fearless, she is really good. How good? Watch this. Up there high up there, dangling up side down, that human spiderman, well more like a spidergirl is one of the best rock climbers in the world and she's only 14. You don't get scared up here? No. Never? No. I am. Yes. Just hold on to this one. Fresh off her spring break in Spain where she scaled one of the toughest rock faces on the planet and she did it in ten minutes flat. Shattering two world records. If I look at this wall and I see this big space with all these colors and I think there's no way I could possibly get to the top? You think what? I would think -- I mean, to the top, because, so I can get to the top. Anything has a solution? Yeah. A daredevil better than grownups twice her age, twice her strength. How good is she? It's on a different level considering her age and is easily top ten, top five female climbers in the world putting her at a level of some of the top climbers. Her tiny fingers searching for the perfect hole since she was 6 years old. She had to beg her parents to let her compete. Her dad is always right there making sure ashima doesn't fall. The biggest challenge for her these days, fitting it all in. Four hours of climbing practice every day after school. Then home work after that and just finding time to be a kid. Wee! From here, there's only one way to go, up. I decided I wanted to be ashima when I grow up. We hope to see you back here tomorrow night. I'm Cecilia Vega in New York. Thanks for spending your Saturday night with us.
