Description 

Hokkaido is known for skiing and wintersports, but plenty of climbing and hiking opportunities exist, and crags are never crowded. Sport, trad, and bouldering can all be found here. The season is generally from May to October, depending on the area. For beta, check out Volume 1 of 日本100岩場, 100 Crags of Japan. Available at Shuugakuso in Sapporo and Asahikawa, which stores should be your first stop on any outdoor adventure.

Getting There 

Fly into Shin-Chitose airport or take a train. Base yourself out of Sapporo or Asahikawa.

This only shows the start and first bolt of Puchi-Tomato, as my other pictures didn't turn out. The rest of the climb is pretty obvious.

Puchi-Tomato 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a  Asia : Japan : ... : Middle Area
A short climb centered around a large pocket on a vertical face. Get to the pocket and around to the upper right to reach the last bolt before pulling up to the anchors. My picture only shows the beginning, unfortunately, but the rest of the climb is obvious....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
