Set out too late in the day so did all the ascent under the full heat of the sun - ran out of water and got very dehydrated. Learned a lesson there. Still got to the top tho' and didn't see a single person en route, in the middle of summer! Perfect.
"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."
