Toru Nakajima Makes Fourth Ascent of Lucid Dreaming in Bishop

Toru Nakajima has repeated Lucid Dreaming V15 on the Grandpa Peabody in Bishop. The steep problem was first sent by Paul Robinson in 2010 and originally thought to be V16, the grade settled at V15. Daniel Woods sent it in 2014 and Alex Megos in 2015, you can watch their sends below.

Nakajima worked on Lucid Dreaming for nearly three years on and off for 16 sessions. Rain and snow forced him to wait for an attempt. “Although my middle finger skin split, I thought I can complete this problem and have to do it now,” Nakajima wrote on Instagram.

Last night @saruzaemon9 sent the Peabody test piece Lucid Dreaming (V15). Nice job man!

“I started from the beginning, caught the grassy and small pinch and caught the final crimp like it was practice. I couldn’t believe it while my way to the top, even I descended to the ground. I paid enormous energy and time, I felt heavy mental pressure during last two years, however I felt it more easier than I expected.”
