Tsukuru Hori bouldering at Silvretta, Austria
© Kletterszene.com, Sep 2013
With the bouldering World Cup over and done, a few members of the Japanese national team took the opportunity to climb some real rock, spending a week at Silvretta, Austria.
The conditions were pretty far from ok most of the time with very high humidity, and sometimes rain, but it didn't stop Tsukuru from making a very quick ascent of Memento, ~8B+, needing only ~15 min. He then went on to flash Charity boulder, ~8B and a lot more.

Yuka Kobayashi, from the Japanese lead climbing team, was also there, managing to do two 8A's, Pretty Belinda and Shining. Not bad for a lead climber!
