Ben Heason - Darwin Dixit 8b+ (Margalef) - Ben sent me these comments on e-mail:
"I did it!! Last day Psyche! It took longer than it should have done overall, but pretty psyched to have done it all the same. Did it first red point on my last day. My risky strategy of beasting myself on it for the first 10 days worked (I actually only climbed on it 1 day out of 5 in the middle, had two double rest days sandwiched either side of a hardcore training session on it!).
It was the first day I'd been on it this trip when it was warm enough to keep my hands warm without a hand warmer. Hard to say what made the difference really, a combination of things I guess. The right amount of rest, temps, just felt strong on the day, who knows? It was more of a psychological battle in the end, and the psyche of the last day helped. PS lo quality vid on Nokia phone but hey ho!!"
