Tomoa Narasaki flashes Decided, 8B+ boulder problem in Japan

di

Japanese climber Tomoa Narasaki has made a flash ascent of Decided, an 8B+ boulder problem at Mizugaki in Japan.

What happens when you take the reigning Boulder World Champion and winner of the 2019 Bouldering World Cup out of the training gym for a day and put him on the rock? Mayhem. Something almost never seen before. Enter Tomoa Narasaki, who in Mizugaki in Japan made the first-go flash ascent of Decided, the 8B+ boulder freed by Ryuichi Murai in 2018 that hit the limelight a few days ago when Murai freed the low start create his 8C+ United. Five further moves that Narasaki will surely home in on sooner rather than later.

In the past the 23-year-old has repeated up to 8B+ but never before had he flashed this level of difficulty and it goes without saying that he joins only handful of climbers who have climbed this hard in this impeccable style. Other who have flashed 8B+ include Daniel Woods (Entlinge, Murgtal, Switzerland, 2011) Adam Ondra (Jade, Rocky Mountain National Park, 2015), Jimmy Webb (The Globalist, Finland, 2016), Ned Feehally (Trust Issues, Rocklands, South Africa, 2017) and Jakob Schubert (Catalan Witness the Fitness, Cova de Ocell, Spain 2018.
