Second ascent.

Yeah it's hard, is that what you want me to say?...It took me 3 years so it was hard for me at least.

...

I found the rest hard on my thighs so I found a little trick for working my thighs. When I had a shower instead of drying myself with the towel I would get out and crouch on my toes until I was dry. [2]
