Rock climbing is a sport that will definitely tire your body out. Most people find they would rather just let go and hang from the rope than to keep climbing.

Well, Ashima Shiraishi is different. This 9-year-old Japanese-American girl enjoys climbing up walls and jumping on rocks, and is nearly as agile as a monkey.

Having a tiny, light body is an advantage to her as she uses it to lift herself up and move her body around.

Her determination has earned her lots of medals in various competitions.

She can even climb those walls that most experienced climbers find hard or impossible.

Small but incredible indeed!
