He is in many ways Flathold’s Japanese ambassador. The 25 year old works as the distributor, but he mostly fit in to the team for his plastic climbing talent; as a matter of fact he met the Swiss pair between two competition rounds. Tsukuru is always ranked in the top 15 in world cups and world championships. He stands out because of his very laid back and curious personality. He is as attentive to shapes as to how he intends to use them in training, and he always stays up to date. If he is first and foremost a competition climber, his performances on rock speak for themselves such as his ascent of Memento in Austria or Takakimikura in Japan, both 8b+.
