Toru Nakajima, 19, gave himself the best possible Christmas gift by making the third ascent of Dai Koyamada's Tokoyo, 8C, at Kasagi, Japan.

Dai put up the problem in November last year calling it his best problem ever.

The second ascent was made by a Japanese climber who wishes to remain anonymous.

I'll try to find out more about this and update the news shortly.

I made an interview with Toru which was published just a couple of weeks ago.
