Gakido 8C+ FA by Shinichiro Nomura

22 March 2022

Shinichiro Nomura, who previously has done ten 8C's, has done the FA of Gakido (8C+) in Chigobutai. "Finally, I sent the old project, known as one of the biggest Japanese routes. In addition to bad holdings, I struggle with the worst positioning that I’ve never felt, compared with some other V15 (8C) projects. However, I managed to send by the sequence that I found. Although the Japanese routes require a lot of moves and are hard to connect as a whole. This route is short and severe but the shape of the boulder is awesome so I’m really happy that I sent it."
