Daniel Woods and Dai Koyamada, two new extreme boulder problems


In the Rocky Mountain National Park (USA) Daniel Woods has freed Mirror Reality 8B+, while at Toyota in Japan Dai Koyamada has freed Shanbara 8C, a sit start to his Agartha.

Bouldering seems to have reached the stars: after the recent frist ascent of Memory is Parallax by Dave Graham, his compatriot Daniel Woods has now addeed Mirror Reality 8B+ to the Rocky Mountain National Park.
