I've tried to decipher Yuji's blog, but I don't understand that much. It seems he succeeded on his 5th day of working it though. I don't know whether this was his first round of working it however. Since the FA, new beta for the crux has been found, by Nico Favresse I believe, making it slightly easier.
FA: Sonnie Trotter
2nd: Nicholas Favresse
3rd: Ethan Pringle
4th: Matt segal
5th: Will Stanhope
6th: Yuji Hirayama
Also worth mentioning is Yuji's onsight of Dinosaur highway, 8b+, at Horne lake, Vancouver Island (thanks for bringing that to my attention Ryan Olson!).
