Writes Sachi Amma, “Since my last trip to this massive cave last December, this route was burning in me. I prepared my body for three months because I haven’t been training for about a few years. It worked pretty well on the route. But after two heartbreaking falls on the middle part, I realized that I wasn’t prepared for this super long steep wall.

“But I wanted to be with the route till the end. So I continued to adapt and adjust in the route. Perseverance paid off. March 27th of 2019, I sent Stoking the fire! Finally, it happened!

“Just after sending, I felt peace, no border, no fear, no mind, melting, full of joy, awaken and intense light running in me. This is the moment! And it is so temporary. I want to expand more. My seeking journey in the climbing world.”
