Daniel Woods has made the second ascent of Dai Koyamada's Hydrangea, ~8C, at Shiobara, Japan.
Exactly one year ago, Daniel repeated Hydra, ~8B, at Shiobara, and now he has added the five move sitstart, weighing in around ~8A/+, and done the previously unrepeated Hydrangea, which was given 8C/+ by Koyamada.
Daniel seems to agree with Dai as he says it's "hard 8C".In this video from last year, we get to see Daniel do Hydra and Catharsis, as well as trying Hydrangea. Unfortunately there are no English subtitles.
