One of my prouder flash attempts! While the physical crux of the boulder is quite down low and requires a very high right foot placement and standing up the top is quite high, very tricky and by no means easy! Took a very close look at the top, cleaned everything, put some tickmarks and waited for a cloud to block the sun, and then just executed it. Definitely on the easier side for tall and flexible people. The shorter the climber, the harder the tricky topout gets! Original name and grade: 夏への扉 1級 Video
I think I can count this as my first real highball, i.e., so high that falling is no option (~7-8m) and the crux being high up. Even though being a really easy boulder physically the crux revolves around a slippery smear with the right foot very high off the ground and a long lock-off to a good jug. This made for quite a thrilling flash experience. Original grade: 6級 Video
Even though this is "just" the straight version of the much more obvious スラッシュフェース (Slashface) this is a really cool boulder to climb! The boulder starts off with very steep climbing on crimps that feel like a natural version of a moonboard boulder. The crux is a very tricky mantle on slopey dents that involves a very tricky placement (because you cannot see the foothold) of the right foot on a good pocket. Really happy to be able to also tick off a Shodan at Mizugaki! Original grade: 初段 ~1d/5t Video
Cool boulder with a painful start, unique middle section, and an easy (but for me a little bit scary) topout. The crux was ignoring the pain of the two-finger pocket for the right hand at the start and getting the feet high up for the next couple of moves. Wasn't really sure whether or not if I could do the final mantle with my left knee but was happy to see that it worked without any real discomfort. Original grade: 1級 ~1d/5t Video
Nice traverse with a distinct crux in the middle. Just looked at the topo and not at any videos before climbing this boulder so I just did what seemed natural to me. Since this felt a little bit too easy for a shodan I looked up some videos afterward and it seems that I used a hold that others didn't use. The topo didn't say anything about holds being off though... Anyways a nice boulder to start off the trip. Original grade: 初段 Video
Last day best day! Just before the gate closed, realized my dream “Launch Pad project” In the process of completion, struggled with many physical and mental factors.. severe finger skin damage from sharp granite, 0℃ cold condition, two low-probability savage cruxes but the sense of fulfillment gained after overcoming them is immeasurable. It was best day to find growth in my climbing life💯
