Toru Nakajima, 19, gave himself the best possible Christmas gift by making the third ascent of Dai Koyamada's Tokoyo, 8C, at Kasagi, Japan.

The second ascent was made by a Japanese climber who wishes to remain anonymous.
I'll try to find out more about this and update the news shortly.
I made an interview with Toru which was published just a couple of weeks ago.
