Reaching Tanigawa by train took me 4 hours, and probably all the other members were similarly disappointed that the efforts made to reach the place the day before had not been rewarded. As a result we couldn't possibly go back home without doing anything.
We all had double ropes but only 1 single rope for rock climbing practice and we ended up going to Arigasa-yama. The approach is only 1 minute to the Northernmost rock wall, yet we had a lot of trouble to find the trailhead.
We set the rope in a way to allow 2 climbers on 2 different routes at the same time.
Most of us couldn't nail the first 10.b route. The 10.a was on the other hand too easy.
We then moved to another spot, a 10.c route proved just right and 3 or 4 of us managed to climb it.
Finally there was an overhanging section at the bottom of the wall, a 10.b and 10.c routes. It required some effort but the 10.b was manageable and the 10.c in its first half but in both cases I needed to rest in the middle.
Meanwhile a family of 3 was climbing 11.b to 11.d routes on the same rock wall. I felt there's still a lot for me to learn and much practice before reaching such level.
