Dai Koyamada has claimed the second ascent of Dave Graham's Chironico testpiece, Big Paw (V15).
Dai traveled to Switzerland this year with Big Paw becoming his main objective. After working on the line for a long time, by Dai's standards, he has completed his goal just before the cold weather set in. Big Paw is the sit start to Boogalagga, a V13 stand-start that was recently ticked by Paul Robinson, Carlo Traversi, and Chris Webb Parsons. Check out this video for footage of Dai getting very close to sending Big Paw as well as Carlo sending Boogalagga.
