Dedicated: Tomoko Ogawa Sends V14

Tomoko Ogawa just sent Catharsis V14/8B+.

… I never gave up. I kept on trying for three years for something that seemed impossible in the beginning.

“I am surprised of the big reaction in the media. I am not a famous climber in the world..maybe nobody knows, and also I was among the last in the world cup every time. I am not a strong climber in actuality. My previous best was two 8A+ and one day I got an impossible DREAM of doing an 8B+. When I tried Cathersis the first time, everyone said it was impossible for me because I had not done an 8B. But I never gave up. I kept on trying for three years for something that seemed impossible in the beginning.”

ClimbingNarc posted a link to the poor Google Translation of her blog. The words are so jumbled, you may consider it poetry.
