Potter decided not to escalate the initial part of the road because of loose rock and height, which did not provide a fall with enough time to open the BASE.
Through its strategy, the more 'safe', he would have 15 seconds of flight from the highest pitches of the route, providing time to open the parachute in the event of a fall.
Potter concludes the road and went walking on the summit of the world as calmly.
