I went to Kitayama-Koen for the second time. I did not get any problem done this day. My finger tips were still in pain from 2 days ago... These granite rocks are super sharp and dangerous. Well, in another words, the fingers get really strong so I have to try getting on to the rocks. The granite is sharper than Gunks rocks.
The park can be reached by using the train system in Kobe and Osaka. From the station to the first boulder is about 20 minutes. Not so bad:) But the problem in this park is, the boulders are scattered around the park that people have to walk a lot. Oh well, what can we do about the rocks, ahahaha.
I got on to several V4, V5, V6, V7 this day but none of them can be sent... "Shogi Special (Sho-dan)" is the one I would like to finish but I could only take off the first step... Very hard. Well, I left many problems at this park so I will get back to them when I come over to my family's house.
I am spending my new years with my family close to Kobe and I have some time so I went for climbing at Kitayama-koen. Kitayama-koen or Kitayama Park is one of the first bouldering area in Japan and very famous. The rocks are granite and are like sharp sand stone. Super sharp!!! There are famous problems like Shogi Normal, Shogi Special, and Gung ho. "Shogi" by the way means Japanese Chess and the boulder itself looks just like Japanese Chess pieces. I sent this Shogi Normal (1 kyu, or V5-6) and thought was about V5 if you know the balancy stance. Other moves were not so difficult because super friction granite. Other problems were super cool with sandy paper surfaces... Top picture is Shogi Normal by Mo.
