They didn't give me any useful information about the route, perhaps because they didn't think I would succeed. I'm proud of the fact that I'm the first European to repeat this route and I must thank the Canadians who, having climbed the route prior to me, were the only ones who gave me precise info about the route.'â€¨â€¨
