An absolutely fantastic day. We took the corrie route up. Walkers were coming down and complaining about the fog, the skies totally opened up for us at the top. My handbook rated it as a 4 out of 5 in seriousness but should a 3. The corrie traverse is definitely the way to go on the next visit.
"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
