8c OS by Hirayama

kairn.com forward news from Yuji “Yesterday 5th October, I did White Zombi, 8c, onsight in Baltzola! It was very hard to wait for good conditions. I waited three days. Finally I did my biggest goal in this year and I am very happy to make new record of onsighting. I climb one more day in Spain and tommorrow I will move to France. I will try more like 9a´s and other onsights. Anyway I am very happy and I will keep trying more challanges to come.” White Zombie is an established 8c with several repeats by strong climbers who know what they´re talking about. Back in 1999 Yuji stunned the world with his onsight of Mortal Kombat at Castillion (8c at the time, downgraded to 8b). Yuji has also put up Flatmountain, 9a+, in Japan. In the All Time High ranking Yuji is #3 and in combination with his outstanding competition record (WC vinner 98 & 00) he is a strong contender for being the #1 climber ever!
