Dai Koyamada has made the first ascent of yet another 8B+ during his exploration of Kyushu, Japan's southern most main island.
As I hinted I would in the previous e-mail I have now completed the next 8B+ at Minamata, Kyushu.
On October 20, I completed Gekko" (clair de lune) 8B+ at Minamata, Kyushu.
I can say it is one of the best 5 lines of all my first ascents.
A wonderful line
Judging from the photo, I see no reason what so ever to doubt his words. It looks stellar!
