Our original plan was climbing Tanigawadake, but due to bad weather we change our plan to Gozaisho in Mie-ken, near Nagoya. We left Kanazawa on saturday afternoon, stayed overnight on a parking place near the start of the hike. In the morning after a small breakfast it was a pleasant hike for 30min to the hut, and another 50min to the start of the Mae-one, the big wall, and further up the start of the Naka-one.
The first pitch was a ugly hand crack that was made a bit easier by a (thin) tree standing behind the climber, allowing us to cheat a bit. Heavy myself of course couldn't cheat too much without breaking the tree.
Finally an easy rappel and walk descent brought as back to the backpacks (and warm clothes). We finished off with two nice routes Masumi were leading on the first wall, a hike down, a nice chat with two climbers from around Kobe, and a visit to a nearby Onsen hotel.
A long drive brought us back to Kanazawa, where we arrived at around 10pm.
Thanks Masumi for the nice climbing, I will surely come back to this area.
