1/6/14 – The not-quite-13-year-old Mirko Caballero has climbed his second V13 with the stand start to Meadowlark Lemon. (The sit start is the V15 that Paul Robinson established.)

His first V13 went down in August in Magic Wood, Switzerland, with One Summer in Paradise. While in Red Rock, he also climbed Lethal Design (V12) and several V10s.

This is a productive start to 2014 for Caballero, whose 2013 included his first 5.14b (Stop Sika in Switzerland), 5.13d flash (Slow Food in Céüse, France), hard, multi-pitch trad (Rostrum,Astroman, and Steck-Salathe in Yosemite), and much more. Caballero is incredibly well-rounded for a young climber; one of his goals includes climbing the Nose of El Capitan in a day.

Date of ascent: January 5, 2014
