The Yielding of Mountains

"It is not remarkable that Everest did not yield to the first few attempts; ... for that is not the way of great mountains.  .. The Mountain still holds the master card, that it will grant success only in it's own good time."  Eric Shipton Upon that Mountain

All told, I'd spend less than five minutes on the roof of the world.
