The Japanese top boulderer Toshi Takeuchi finished last year well. In December he sends the 4th ascent of the boulder „Vanitas“ (8C) by the old master Dai Koyamada.

„The season of Mizugaki is over, so I went to Horai today. And did quick ascent of my old project, Vanitas.
I’m 34 years old now, but I’m glad I could feel it much easier than before. 😉

I still have 3 more projects in Horai. This winter, I would like to train at Horai and prepare for next spring’s Mizugaki.“
