Dai Koyamada's report about the super project in Mt. Hiei.
I sat down on the pitch-dark ledge with heavy breathing and stayed there for a moment until I became aware that I’ve done it finally. I had to climb up another 5 meters of slab to reach the top. So I asked to pass me a headlamp and enjoyed the completion of this project with fear but with full of happiness. This is how I completed my hardest climbing ever. Before finishing this project, I was afraid that I would burn out and might lose motivation for climbing. But this never happened.
