Perhaps I can pose a question here, as there are many climbers (apparently).!?!
I am really not good with heights (natural heights anyway, buildings and aeroplanes no problem). I just can’t feel comfortable with the whole ‘don’t look down’ thing. Even just looking at your photos, Tomser, gives me the habjabs. Kilimanjaro was great because it’s a hike. Quite a difficult hike, with long distances, towards near 6k metre altitude (I didn’t get altitude sickness), and a few bits less fun than others, but just a hike all the same.
So would I be able to scale Aconcagua?
It’s definitely a bit more ‘ropey’ than Kilimanjaro, but no-one seems prepared to answer this question honestly..!
