Actually, Ramon writes on his blog that the heat was unbearable in the cave and that it didn't feel very good as he was warming up (as if that was really necessary), and that he was wondering what the hell he was doing there. But hey, as was was there already he might as well give it a go.
The first attempt, which was mostly to get the moves redialed, went not so bad, but as he felt he fell rather easily at the end of the crux sequence, he decided to give it another go.
