I got a short message from Dai Koyamada: "I did Big Paw in Chironico yesterday. About 7 pm of Friday. I have a movie of this!"
A short message, but big news! Big paw, 8C, first done by Dave Graham, is the sit down version of Boogalagga, a beautiful blunt arÍte at Chironico, Switzerland. This was the 2nd ascent
