In Dai's video diaries vol 3/The Swizzy Journeys we get to follow Dai Koyamada on his annual trip to Switzerland in the summer of 2010.
This trip was highly successful and the one hour video features 20 ascents harder than 8A+, half of which are 8B+'s or harder, including In Search of Time Lost, 8C, and Dark Matter, 8B+/C, at Magic wood, and Deadalus Direct, 8B+/C", at Sustenpass, to name a few.
Those of you who like watching incredible climbing should definitely buy this video, because when it comes to style Dai is second to none!
Since this was filmed, Dai has continued working his way through the hardest problems in Switzerland as well as adding first ascents of his own. Hopefully we will get a chance to see more in future releases.
