Just before Christmas Dai Koyamada made the first ascent of Shanbara, yet another extreme problem, at Toyota in Japan.

"On 20th December 2011, I completed a new line in Toyota, Japan.
This problem is a sit down start version of Agartha, 8B+, and is called Shanbara.

There are four moves in the roof before linking into Agartha.

The crux is [still] a dyno in Agartha.

It took me 5 days of tries and I think this problem is a very good one.

Probably, the grade is 8C, but [as always] I wait for the opinion of the repeater."

Here's the video of Dai doing the stand up version:
