Dai Koyamada Sends Longtime Project

Japanese climber, Dai Koyamada, has climbed a mega project Mount Hiei that he was introduced to three years ago.

Koyamada, 38, reported on his blog (in Japanese) that the climb follow a steep crack in a granite boulder that is followed by a five-metre slab.

He is yet to grade or name the route, but visit his blog for more photos.

Koyamada has long been one of the world’s most cutting-edge boulderers with over 20 V15s to his name.

Koyamada had suggested V16 for two of his new routes in the past: Wheel of Life and The Story of Two Worlds low start, so it would not be a surprise if he’s most recent send is V15 or harder.
