 Failed Attempt at Aconcagua   

In November I headed down to Mexico and Argentina to climb Orizaba, where I was successful, and Aconcagua. I was sadly turned around by cold hands and toes. This is a total report of the whole experience. Tons of pictures.

To the Summit of the Western Hemisphere

This was a lot of fun to read. Bummer about not reaching the summit but it sounds like it was the right choice. Great write-up.

You were in great shape but things just didn't go your way - from the finicky stove to less than adequate key clothes. Save some dough, get some nice boots (overboots?) and mitts and kick the mtn's ass again! Best of luck.
