After Dai Koyamada’s first ascent of „Event Horizon“ (8C, V15) and Toru Nakajima’s repeat of „Epitaph“ 8C(+), Shinichiro Nomura was able to climb a new top boulder. He had a hard time with „Gakidō“ (8C+/V16). He first tried the ten-year-old project „Child Stage“ on the Abukuma River near Fukushima in the Tohoku region in January last year.
