Wife's first off-trail route Date Climbed: Apr 19, 2011
Cave Knoll was the first time my wife followed an off-trail route to a summit. Despite some uneasiness in a couple of exposed spots, she had a great time and by the end of our April trip was asking if we could do more off-trail routes because trails had suddenly become a little boring.
"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."
