I did it! The route of my dreams, Tom et je Ris. It was a fight to the very end. In the high crux I was certain that I was off. I even screamed out, Noooo, as I came up short with my left hand. I dug deep; slammed a right heel against the tufa, managed a quick shake for my left hand only and then I just kept to my sequence and kept going through the motions, screaming with each move. To my amazement I arrived at the last cave and took a very long rest.

So needless to say that I am on cloud nine, I have achieved something that I have been dreaming about for several years now. It almost feels unreal.
