Nuclear War is a sit start that adds 6 moves to War Cry, graded V11 and located in Southern New York. The problem hadn’t been climbed since the first ascent.

Shirashi got the ascent in just one day after climbing (the same day) Worthless V11 | 8A and Wetness the Fatness V12 | 8A+.

With just 14 years of age Shiraishi has already climbed 3 problems in the V14 range and 6 V13 | 8Bs. The only female climber whose ticklist can compare is Alex Puccio (3 V14, 7 V13).

Update: Shortly after Ashima made the 2nd ascent of Nuclear War, Bryce Viola climbed the problem as well:
