Daniel Woods has made the second ascent of Dai Koyamada's Hydrangea, ~8C, at Shiobara, Japan.
Exactly one year ago, Daniel repeated Hydra, ~8B, at Shiobara, and now he has added the five move sitstart, weighing in around ~8A/+, and done the previously unrepeated Hydrangea, which was given 8C/+ by Koyamada.
