Epitaph 8C

Dai Koyamada's new problem. Took him a year to link, apparently.

Horai must be one of the most elite destinations for bouldering.  Basically nothing under 7a+, not even a decent warm up. Tons of really hard quality problems, and now yet another v15. Oh, did I mention that the sport climbing there is really good too.

Does look nails, very Dreamtime-esque!

Is he any relation to Inch High Private-Eye? The photo on the left definately makes him look like a very wee man ;D

I know nothing about bouldering in double figures but that looks worth a whole lot of V15.

Fuck sake - when it comes to aspiring to do, or even going to look at things as amazing as this, my bank account would'nt even get me to the airport?  Looks brilliant.

I think in this case a bit of strength would help.
