Dai had planned to spend April in Switzerland, but decided to postpone the trip and climb at home in Japan instead.

April 12 he managed to make the first ascent of Agartha, 8B+, at Toyota. The meat of the problem appears to be a dyno from a minuscule crimp to a not so good hold, but the rest is certainly no walk in the park either.

Dai earlier said he felt very motivated to do this project. More motivated than he had felt for some time.

Here's a video. Enjoy!
