Ashima Shiraishi’s Climbing Accident
Perhaps one of the most famous accidents involving Stone Summit involved the rock climbing prodigy Ashima Shiraishi in 2016. Shiraishi (15 at the time) had completed some of the most treacherous climbs worldwide. In July 2016, she fell more than 45 feet after her rope slipped from her father’s hands.
While this kind of climbing accident is rare, it does happen and can be fatal. Shiraishi walked away from the accident with only minor injuries by some sort of miracle.
Although Stone Summit was technically not at fault, it was an event that adds to the idea that the place is potentially cursed.
In recent years, Stone Summit has garnered a reputation for being an unlucky place to climb. Locals report always seeing an ambulance leaving the place, usually due to accidents.
Something may haunt the grounds of the building so that climbers can’t scale the walls in peace. Or perhaps the vengeful spirit of a former employee or unsuccessful climber lingers here…
The numerous reports of spooky activity are why we had to add it to our list of stops in Atlanta. If any spirits are haunting Stone Summit Midway, you’re sure to find them during our tour.
