Daniel Woods and Dai Koyamada, two new extreme boulder problems

10.01.2012 by Planetmountain

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.

A fortnight ago and on the other side of the Pacific Ocean, Dai Koyamada freed Shanbara close to Toyota in Japan. The problem adds a sitstart to his Agartha: four more moves which take the grade from 8B+ to 8C. Here's an old video of Agartha... at minute 10.00 Koyomada attempts the sitstart of what was to become Shanbara.
