Ryuichi Murai reports on Insta, that he had done „The Game“ in Boulder Canyon (USA). It was his seventh 8C. It was the 5th ascent of the Daniel Woods Boulder from 2010. Now it’s time for an 8C + Boulder ;-).

„I’m so happy to send Daniel’s masterpiece! It took 2 days to send. First day, this boulder was bad condition due to rain and snow. I could do compression moves of upper part on the day, but bottom part (from start holds to 3rd hold) was so wet, and I couldn’t do. Second day, this boulder was better condition and I managed to climb it in the evening. When I touched this boulder at the first time, I was certain that I can climb because I’m good at roof climbing and compression moves. So I could do quick ascent though it’s a hard problem.“
