Dai Koyamada has made the first ascent of Nehanna, ~8B+/C, at Gero, Japan. Dai has been forced to climb at night lately because of the heat, and I think he felt he had ran out of time for now. But:

Miracle happened! Last night I did it! So glad to established this line which I found last June and dream to send. Definitely this is the one of my best FAs ever. Tentatively V14/15. Hope anyone else evaluate it.

Dai, who turns 40 later this summer, now has around 40 problems in the "harder than 8B+"-range to his name and shows no signs of slowing down.

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