Ascended with Ken on a day trip to Wales from Liverpool. Wet start then driving hailstones on the trail to the Lynn. At the Lynn, Ken was surprised to see that there was a puddle of water inside the bothy. We carefully crossed the reservoir spillway as the water was surging close to the iron ladder. After that the rest of the ascent was uneventful. We only saw one other person.
"After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally, you see things as they really are, which is the most horrible thing in the world."
