Last holiday I went to Kalymnos for trying my project Inshallah, 8c+, I left last year. It went quite good, even if some important holds were wet, and the second week I could pass all the cruxes ! Unfortunately, I had not the good method for getting the last hold and foolishly fell ! After, I tried the route at least ten times but couldn't get again to that movement ...  This was definitely my hardest and longest project up to now. It was also my first long term project and it was a kind of mental game ! Nicolas Favresse made the FA and said my methods were way too hard for that route and there  actually was a knee bar for the last crux !...  Anyway, I will go back and hopefully will crush it :-) !

Making 4 tries a day also helped my to get fit and now I'm prepared for the upcoming competitions !

Loic
