No expectations, no pressure just my classic motivation for this passion were inside me yesterday. The same passion that I'm living everyday since 2007, when I decided to live my life as a climber. So now every pieces of my puzzle went together, all the sacrifices, the time dedicate, the motivation, the body and mental aspects collaborated as just one thing and I was able to climb the hardest thing in my life.
