After Mirko Caballero sent Lethal Design, (V12) He set his eyes on the infamous Meadow Lark Lemon (V13 stand start, V14 sit start). After battling the problem for a few days a foot hold breaks making Mirko have to change his beta. Meadow Lark pushes the kid to his max but with Shaun Raboutou's help he sees some new beta and redoubles his efforts. After another two-day battle he finally manages the standing start and not too longer after Mirko completed the sit start (V14, 8b+) making him, at age 13, the youngest person ever to climb the grade. Factoid: the next youngest person to climb V14 was Adam Ondra at age 15. A Kid Climbs one of the Coolest Problems in the USA | Caballero Confessions of a Kid Crusher, Ep. 5

Why are they saying that the next youngest person to climb v14 was Ondra at age 15? Ashima Shiriashi is currently 13 and has send not one but TWO v14s!
