Tsukuri Hori bouldering in Silvretta, Austria. Photo courtesy of Kletterszene.comWith the bouldering World Cup over and done, a few members of the Japanese national team took the opportunity to climb some real rock, spending a week at Silvretta, Austria.

The conditions were pretty far from ok most of the time with very high humidity, and sometimes rain, but it didn’t stop Tsukuru from making a very quick ascent of Memento (8B+/V14), needing only ~15 min. He then went on to flash Charity Boulder (8B/V13) and a lot more.

Tsukuru’s full list:

Memento 8B+ (V14)
Charity Boulder, 8B (V13) – Flash
Golden Gate, 8B (V13)
Rombuk, 8A+ (V12)
More Shining, 8A+/8B (V12/V13)
British Airways, 8A (V11) – Flash
Pretty Berlinda, 8A (V11) – Flash in the rain
Razorblade Junior, 8A (V11)
Shining, 8A (V11)
Niviuk, 8A (V11) – In sneakers

Yuka Kobayashi, from the Japanese lead climbing team, was also there, managing to do two 8As, Pretty Belinda and Shining. Not bad for a lead climber!
