Climbing Higher
Having scrambled up Cloud Peak at 13,167 feet twice this summer, I was pretty pleased with myself. But, it's just a bump compared to the real mountains of the world. There's a young man locally here who is working on climbing the tallest peaks on each continent - now that's ambitious! He tried Mt. Aconcagua at the start of 2007, but had to turn back.
Mt. Aconcagua in Argentina is the highest peak in the southern and western hemispheres at 22,831 feet. It's actually the highest mountain outside Asia.
I ran into a site called Tusker Trail that leads climbs of both Aconcagua and Kilimanjaro (19340 feet). There's a pretty cool video on the site about Kilimanjaro and the guide that has climbed it over 30 times now.
