Dai Koyamada has established a beautiful new problem at Minamata, Japan. Dai has been exploring the bouldering of Kyushu and his new problem Nostalgia (V14) is just one of many quality new boulders he’s found.

Carlo Traversi is spending his fall season bouldering at Leavenworth, Washington. Most notable is his recent first ascent of what he’s calling The Penrose Step (V14). On his 8a scorecard, Carlo said that the problem, formerly known as the Ladder Project, was “one of the most perfect, pure lines (he’d) ever seen.”
