Epitaph | 8C+ Boulder problem

8a.nu

The problem lost some holds after Dai Koyamada made the first ascent, then shortly after Ryuichi Murai made the second ascent another important hold was lost and the problem was considered unclimbable. However Toru Nakajima was able to reclimb the problem, suggesting an upgrade to 8C+ in the state he climbed it in.
