Flash news from bouldering


A couple of recent ascents by Dai Koyamada and Nico Januel.

The legendary japanese climber, one of the strongest boulderers since many years, goes on in finding and climbing new extreme projects in Japan. Few days after the ascent of the 8C/C+ of Sanctum, Dai reports on Instagram that he now climbed another project on Mt. Kasagi, still unnamed. The proposal is 8B+/C:

“Last night, I was able to complete the project I was trying in Mt. Kasagi. It took 5 days total. I’m grading this tentatively at V14/15 or 5Dan. I wish to discuss this with later ascensionists and decide. I am happy to have sent it, for now. And glad that another great problem is born. Now I feel like I’m ready to move on to next project. The problem is yet to be named.”


From Japan to Fontainebleau, with a great ascent by Nico Januel, again reported on Instagram. Nico cllimbed Le dernier fléau, 8C, a rarely repeated problem by Seb Frigault  that adds a direct sit start to the famous line of Gourmandise. It’s the second 8C of the french climber.
