Route Climbed: Hans-Hernler-Steig Date Climbed: April 29th, 2001
Missed the Naturfreundesteig and went up the Hans-Hernler-Steig instead. A guy coming down was very hard, teaching us some mountaineering rules. Also we didn't have all winter equipment. On the upper parts there were quite some snow, also some steep sections. Descended by the Naturfreundesteig, which was free of snow. So it turned out even better than planned.
"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."
