Dai Koyamada has made the first ascent of Rokudou, ~8C, in the Kagura cave, Japan. 

Dai says he has added three hard moves to the starrt of Meikyoushisui (As bright and clean as a stainless mirror) ~8B+/C, in the Kagura cave. He calls his new creation Rokudou (deities) and says he thinks it weighs in around ~8C.

Dai is apparently in great shape. A week or so ago he climbed Helix, ~8B+, Mukuro, ~8B, and Izanagi, ~8A in a single day, and  a couple of days later Meikyoushisui, ~8B+/C.

Dai Koyamada is sponsored by: Beal, Black Diamond, Evolv, Flashed, Inga and Musashi
