Dai Koyamada (44) does yet another 8C FA

Thursday, 5 November

Dai Koyamada is a true boulder legend having done more than twenty 8C FAs, which is most in the world. The 165 cm tall has been making headlines since 1998 when he was #4 in a Lead World Cup. The 44-year-old did his first 8C in 2003 and he has now done more than 30. In 2005 he did Action Directe 9a.
